I liked the flavor, it was much less sweet than the bottled version so it worked well to use as an ingredient in a dish rather than a condiment. If I wanted to make it to use as regular bbq sauce, I would probably want to sweeten it up and use tomato paste/less tomatoes not sure what proportions--this was really watery. Also, it would need to simmer to melt the sugar and get all the flavors mingling, I didn't do that since it was going in the crockpot.
1 15oz can tomatoes (I used diced, drained off what liquid I could, then used an immersion blender to puree it. I'm sure other types of canned tomatoes would work, perhaps better.)
1/2 c molasses (this gave it a bitter flavor, which I liked but you might want to start with less if you aren't sure)
1/4 c brown sugar
3 cloves garlic, minced
3 T Worcestershire sauce
3 T white vinegar
1 1/2 t smoked paprika (alternately I saw a couple recipes calling for chipotles, which would also give a smoky flavor with some extra kick)
3/4 t pepper
1/4 t onion powder
1/4 t seasoned salt
I used 5 chicken half breasts for this amount of sauce. Also, I didn't measure with actual measuring cups and spoons--everything is to taste!
