I have been trying a few new recipes lately and this is one of my new favorites. I was in our supermarket and ran across Eaton’s Rum BBQ Sauce and thought well this should be a tasty recipe and anything that says Jamaica and rum can’t go wrong. I was not disappointed and will definitely add this to my list of favorites. If you really like rum and you are only preparing for adults then I would suggest to add 4-6 tablespoons of Jamaican white rum or substitute with Bacardi to the BBQ sauce mix. Should give it a little kick. Enjoy!
