“I love this sauce because its thin and doesn't have a base of ketchup or mustard. Its a real barbecue marinade/sauce and made to tenderize any meat before grilling. You may also baste lightly while grilling and then serve some on the side with your meal. I found this recipe in the newspaper years ago.”
