I was researching a bbq marinade for some pork ribs and came across a good recipe for bbq sauce. I had most of  the ingredients but have substituted some for what I had. . I have tweaked qty of some things to adjust balance and flavour for my taste. So here is my tweaked version. Use with pork, Chicken, BBQ Meat, Steak, Snags.
