Anyone use sorghum syrup in homemade BBQ sauce?

    I have a base recipe that's comprised of:

    Chopped onion sautéed in a stick of butter than add
    ketchup
    vinegar/ or apple cider vinegar 
    Little mustard
    Worcestershire
    brown sugar
    paprika
    pepper
    garlic powder 
    cayenne 
    honey

    And a few other things.. was thinking about throwing the sorghum in the mix any thoughts?

    Absolutely!!  I use it in baked beans and chili too.  It's not nearly as sweet as molasses, adds a root beer taste.  I've use root beer in things as well, but sorghum eliminates the need to boil off the extra water to thicken it back up.

    Wonderful in a pot of beans too

    Yes. It's not terribly different than Grandma's Unsulphured Molasses (not quite as sweet though) IMHO. I have a jar of Amish Sorghum. It's a bit thicker and has a robust flavor that we like it.

    I was raised on country syrup (as we called it) condensed milk and biscuits mixed together. Was a great dessert. See no reason why it would be nothing less than fantastic in BBQ sauce.

    I put a half cup in my last batch and I'm digging it :-)

    Being from Kentucky, Sorghum is in my DNA. Use it in brine for butts, BBQ sauce, beans, chili, soups, fajitas, you name it, it will work.

    Sounds good!  Somebody else can probably chime in on what this is--creamy peanut butter, marshmallow fluff, and corn syrup mixed together served over biscuits.  I'm trying to remember where I had it......Amish country?......south-central Indiana maybe?
