Zesty Barbeque Sauce

This Barbecue sauce is great I took the suggestion of one of the reviewer's to reduce the ketchup by 1/2 & add 1 roasted red pepper (diced). I also like my BBQ sauce a little thicker so I added 1 additional teaspoon of all purpose flour. This sauce is great.

Fabulous! Possibly the best BBQ sauce I've ever had. I used only 1/2 tablespoon of black pepper as many folks suggested. Thanks!

Just tried this today. Made a double batch, but used roasted red peppers for half of ketchup called for. It tastes quite zesty, but like real barbecue sauce once again! Trying not to mess up my stove again today, I put everything in my bread maker & used the jam cycle to cook it. Then, froze it in small batches. So glad to have these recipes. Thank you!!

i am a stage 4 pkd. going to get a kidney soon, will any of these ingredients be ok for me? i take phosphorus binders. Dietitian comment: Yes the Zesty BBQ Sauce as well as over 900 recipes on were created for diets low in phosphorus, sodium and potassium. Look at the per serving total for these nutrients as opposed to specific ingredients.

This recipe is very good. I always have it on hand to make BBQ sandwiches or BBQ chicken pizza. I do cut down the black pepper to 1/2 TBS and go easy with the tobacco so it isn't so hot. My husband loves it!

Moderator: what could be used in place of the red wine vinegar? My husband is post liver transplant. Dietitian comment: You can use white distilled vinegar or increase the tarragon vinegar to 1/2 cup.

On dialysis for 3 months. A challenging chapter in my life. This is tremendous site with all the recipes. Wish each category was available in book form. For this BBQ recipe can honey be substituted instead of brown sugar. On contents I would give it a 4.Moderator comment: Yes honey instead of brown sugar is fine for a kidney diet.

This is an awesome sauce. My whole family loves it. I use it for a lot of different things. It will last a long time in the fridge. But when I make it in large batches I freeze part of it. Enjoy!!!

This is an awesome sauce! Made it twice so far; my wife and I both love it! It's good as it is, but also easy to play with the ingredients for taste. It's not a big deal if you don't have one or two things, it's still going to turn out!
