Very good sauce! I didn't have canned chipotle peppers so I used the ground chipotle pepper spice. Sticks the chicken perfectly, is easy to make and is really finger lickin' good. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Lees sauce is totally yummy, I added a shot of Jack Daniel's to kick it up a notch...sooooo delicious! item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is by far the best BBQ sauce recipe. I have so many food allergies I have to make my own BBQ sauce. Very flavorful and so easy. I use for BBQ chicken pizza, perfect for that. Also pulled pork. item not reviewed by moderator and published
I really like this sauce, I put all the ingredients in the blender and blitzed it all up then tasted it and it came out too sweet for my tastes. Also, the adobos were super tasty but too hot right off the bat for me. I added about ¼ cup of China Lily Soy Sauce and simmered it off. The glutaminous dimension of the soy sauce really made it come together. Simmering it off is important because it rounds out the spiciness of the peppers. Turned out super tasty for ribs. This is a keeper for me. item not reviewed by moderator and published
just mad a nice batch to have for late can i can the extra ? item not reviewed by moderator and published
it was really good, i followed the directions and ingredients except for the chipotle peppers because of others that reviewed it. i added one but it was far too sweet for my taste. i love tangy, vinegar, and spicy so i reduced the amount of sugars(molasses and brown sugar) upped the vinegar and used apple cider instead of white. Also added two tsps of chipotle sauce as well as 4 peppers and it came out so yummy and spicy but still slightly sweet which i can stand more now because of all the spice and vinegar. totally love it now but it was still really good as is. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Awesome -- a definite keeper. Easy, delicious and perfect on wings or drumsticks! item not reviewed by moderator and published
I made this today. I love Ree"s recipes but I knew I couldn't handle 4 chipotle peppers. So I started with one and stopped. It was perfect. Combination of sweet and spicy. Will definitely make it again. Thumbs up!!!! item not reviewed by moderator and published
The best BBQ sauce ever! Easy to make, and I get rave reviews. I use this for pulled pork. I use the Neely's dry rub to roast the pork. I usually double the recipe - make one following the recipe, and another with more adoboe/chipotle for even hotter sauce. YUM! item not reviewed by moderator and published
this is more of a hot sauce than bbq sorry. don't get me wrong i love adobo peppers but they don't really belong in a barbeque sauce. item not reviewed by moderator and published
