    This is without a doubt the best BBQ sauce I’ve ever tasted! Congrats Melissa on another winner recipe!

    I’m not a “mustard” person, but I have yellow, brown & Dijon on hand…would any of these give similar flavor as the ground mustard seed…or should I wait and buy some? I really want to make this! Thanks πŸ˜‰

    An update on my review: when I made this delicious BBQ sauce, it yielded more than I could use up in 4 weeks time. So I divided it into 3 containers and put 2 of them in the freezer. When thawed, it tasted great! So if anyone is curious, this amazing BBQ sauce does freeze very well!

    Your Balsamic BBQ sauce is awesome. Did pork ribs in slow cooker and added your sauce the last hour! Awesome!!!

    Your sauce sounds great. Do you think this could be canned? I think this would be a great gift for a guy that loves to BBQ.

      Cindy, I don’t see why not. To be honest, it last a while refrigerated so I definitely think canning it would be great. Keep me posted if you try!
