Regarding BBQ, Inc.
You might not think of a cola as the base for a barbecue sauce, but the sweetness of the soda helps to enhance the flavors of the sauce. You can reduce the calories of this sauce with diet soda, but it will change the flavor.

Great with a little tweeking, Member bmpotter24

I found the chili powder to be over powering. I ended up making a second batch to mix in with the first and left out the chili powder. Once I mixed the two together it was a huge hit. Will def me making it again!!!
