"I followed this recipe exactly, and I've got to say it was the best I've tried so far, and I have tried many claiming to be be the best. I have to agree with danboy357, if you aren't following it exactly then you are kinda defeating the purpose of the recipe as written. I wouldn't change a thing, this is 'the one' when it comes to making your own sauce!" - lil nutbrown hare
