    Hi guys, I need a recipe for a proven sweet bbq rub for pork and chicken.
    It can't be hot in any way, spice in the mouth is ok but still needs to be sweet. My wife can't handle heat at all, adverse reaction in her digestive system. I don't want to buy it, I want to blend my own so I know whats in it for her sake. I have tried a few but so far no go. Thanks in advance for any help.

    [​IMG] Steve this one should be ok
    Use thissauce for beef, pork or chicken.
    1/2 C. vegetable oil
    1 onion, finely chopped
    1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
    2 tsp. minced garlic
    1 (16 oz.) bottle catsup (2 cups)
    1/2 C. molasses
    1/4 C. prepared yellow mustard
    2 T. cider vinegar
    1/2 C. firmly packed dark brown sugar
    4 T. Worcestershire sauce
    1/4 C. fresh lemon juice
    Place oil in a large non−aluminum saucepan over medium−low heat, then sauté
    onion, bell pepper and garlic until soft (about 10 minutes).
    Add catsup, molasses, mustard, vinegar, brown sugar,
    Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice. Continue to simmer slowly
    for 20 to 30 minutes. Stir frequently to prevent sauce from burning.
    Let rest at least 1 hour after cooking to allow flavors to blend. Yields 4 cups.
