"This recipe has been passed down by word of mouth in our fire station for years! It is fabulous and you can control how hot it is by how much red pepper you add. Please note that the longer it sits, the hotter it gets! Great on chicken, pork, and just about anything you can think of. Try it on a cracker with a slice of cheese!"

This is very good, and it makes a lot. Great for some, not so great for me seeing as I live alone! Easy to make. I found it tasted much better the next day.

This recipe is a good start. Very easy and okay in flavor - but a little sweet for us. I didn't have cider vinegar - so used white vinegar. Added a little more vinegar, a splash of worchestershire, some garlic and onion powder. Also, a bit less red pepper flakes just because we don't care of a LOT of heat. After the changes, I'll be making this often.

A bit spicy. I recommend half the amount of chilli flakes as it really does keep getting hotter the longer it sits in your fridge. But overall an excellent recipe.
