Greg-

I have to tell you I'm making this stuff right now for a company BBQ competition this weekend. Simmering on the stove this smells REALLY REALLY good! I'll have to let you know after the weekend how it goes over.

Greg-

I like the sauce. The event wasn't well organized and judged (first time they put it together) so I couldn't get good feedback. I served the sauce cold and my personal opinion was that it was a little bit too far on the tomato/ketsup flavor side. But when it was warm the night before I didn't have that feeling and really enjoyed it. I'll definitely try it again with a smaller party/group of people at my home but I need to find some of that tamrind sauce. Know where to find it on the internet? I found lots of different kinds but wasn't sure what you most recommended.

Tony,

I think that the Tamarind is very important to making this sauce. Also if you like a sauce that is less sweet you can add a bit more apple cider vinegar or lemon juice. If you want a bit more bite and heat add more Cayenne pepper.  While the sauce is a bit sweet, it is not sweet like other sauce you find and you should taste a bit of the heat from the cayenne.

I find that when the sauce mellows after it cools for a day or so in the refrigerator and the taste improves over time.

The Tamarind can be found in the refrigerated part of most Indian grocery stores. I also found it online for $5.00, but shipping will cost you an additional $6.00. I like the Deep brand (Deep Tamarind-Date (Sweet & Sour Sauce), see photo below
