Applesauce gives this sauce a nice thick texture that coats well on meat. It has a sweet spicy flavor that is excellent on chicken or pork. It may also be canned in sterile containers for later use, or for giving as gifts.

We have created a feeding frenzy with this recipe on ribs. It is the best rib bbq sauce there is. We baste our ribs after we slow cook our baby back ribs for 4 hrs on low heat (250) with a cookie sheet full of water underneath the ribs - put ribs directly on oven rack. The key to take away the sweetness is to make sure you use a good, spicy rub - rub ribs before you place them in the oven or rub them the night before. The spicier the better for the rub as the sweetness of the BBQ sauce totally compliments it. Also - make sure the BBQ sauce has cooled before using it - it goes on thicker.

Excellent! I am rather picky about my barbeque sauce. Most bottled varieties do not agree with my stomach, so I usually avoid barbeque sauce altogether. However tonight I was looking for something different to make for dinner, and found this recipe. I made 1/2 batch of it and used it on boneless pork chops. Amazing! I changed a few things as per other reviewers' suggestions. For 1/2 batch I: cut the sugar in half, using only a scant 1/2 cup; added 1/2 teaspoon of dried onion flakes; and added 1/4 teaspoon of Frank's Red Hot Sauce, for heat. All of the other ingredients I left the same, in the proportions as stated (for 1/2 batch). Next time I think I will cut the sugar even more, probably use 1/3 cup. And I will add more Frank's Hot Sauce because my husband and I like our sauce to have a bit more of a kick. Overall, this recipe is great, and the texture from the applesauce is wonderful. I noticed right away that it does not have that "chemically" taste that bottled sauces have. Very fresh, tangy, and tasty--this will definitely become my standard barbeque sauce recipe!

Much to sweet for my taste. I used about 1/2 the sugar called for and still found it to be sickening sweet like a dessert topping.
