Key Lime provides the foundation for this Key West BBQ Sauce. Other ingredients include brown sugar, soy sauce, Tequila, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, molasses, corn syrup, anchovies, tamarind, New Mex chilies, garlic, onion, mesquite flavor, and a set of secret spices. The ingredients are blended subtly to produce a smooth sauce with a lot of personality. The tequila and lime are happy neighbors that get along well with the mesquite flavor well. The chilies add such a quite heat that it’s almost unnoticeable while providing a nice complement to the other flavors going on. Overall, there is a sweetness followed by a tart aftertaste, thanks primarily to the lime.
