    1 cup apricot preserve's
    1/4 cup dark rum
    1/4 cup tomato paste
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    3 tbs cider vinegar
    2 tbs ketchup
    1 tbs soy sauce
    1 tbs molasses
    2 tsp worcestershire sauce
    2 tbs fresh shallot, minced
    1 tbs fresh ginger, minced
    2 cloves garlic, minced
    1/2 to 1 scotch bonnet pepper, seeded and minced
    1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
    salt and black pepper to taste
    1-1/2 to 2 tsp of horseradish to taste

    Just a little history behind this sauce......My wife and i used to clean offices to earn a little extra cash. I came across an issue of esquire magazine and in it was the story of a writer for the magaine getting lucky enough to get a spot in the Jack Daniels world BBQchampionships.....lucky dog, any way this was the first sauce i've ever used, the first rib's i've ever cooked, notice the word cooked, @ the time i only had a grill and i must say they did not come out to bad. That was back in 1991 and only recently have i gotten to use this on my cgsp, i must say even better.

    So i hope y'all try it and enjoy as much as me and mine do.

    Sounds great! I'll have to give it a try.

    I've never seen Scotch Bonnet peppers around here, would a regular habanero suffice?
