Sorry for of topic, but I saw Snip, posted chutney as an ingredient and remembered that I need to ask about it.
What kind of chutney is it Charlie?

I use chutney as a condiment. I put a blob on my plate and eat it with the meat or veg, sort of the way one uses mint jelly with lamb or cranberry sauce with poultry.

Most Indian Chutneys are used as a condiment with curries or breads and cheese. You can also add it to mayo dressing for macaroni or potato salad for a sweet and spicy twist.

I use three different recipes, one during cooking, a second for final glazing and presentation, and a third as a table sauce. These are professional recipes which I've never shared previously but I no longer compete or cook professionally so I hope others will enjoy them.

They're good basic recipes but feel free to modify them to your personal taste and ingredients on hand. I certainly do. In fact, I doubt I've ever made them exactly them same except by coincidence.

Mop for Pork Shoulder and Ribs :
1 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup prepared yellow mustard
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp course black pepper
1 Tbsp salt
2 tsp onion powder
2 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp oil
Hot sauce to taste

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.

Barbecue Glaze:
1 cup catchup
1 onion, finely chopped
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup vinegar
1/2 cup water
3 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp lemon juice
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp course black pepper
2 tsp salt
Hot sauce to taste

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Add a little water if needed for desired consistency. When meat, chicken or ribs are done, apply glaze and continue cooking over medium low heat until the glaze begins to dry and gets sticky. Remove from heat and serve. Be careful not to burn the glaze.

BBQ Table Sauce:
1 bottle Hunt's Original BBQ Sauce
1/4 to 1/2 cup vinegar
2 Tbsp sazon completa
2 Tbsp lemon juice
Hot sauce to taste

Place all ingredients in a sauce pan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes.
[NOTE: For Honey/Mustard Sauce, before cooking add 1/4 cup each of honey and mustard.]

I'm a bit late to the post but I've been making this bbq sauce for years and it's is very similar to the ones you have already shared with one different ingredient, onion. There is something about them that we love in this sauce.
I use this on ribs and pulled pork and it really compliments the smokey flavors from the grill. I got the recipe from my mother-in-law.
1 onion chopped
enough oil (veggie or olive) to coat onions, maybe 1/2 cup
1 cup ketchup
1/2 to 1 cup brown sugar
cayenne to taste

Sautee onions til translucent, add the rest of ingredients. I let the sauce reduce quite a bit. I don't know if that is really necessary but it seems to make it better to me.
I'll also throw in some of the rub I use on the ribs or pork butt sometimes.

For ribs, chops and chicken breasts,, my family likes the sweet, ketchup based sauce slathered on at the end. My recipe is similar to the other ones on here, but I also like to add ground cumin and ground coriander seed. A bit of liquor adds some depth also....rum, whiskey, brandy, etc....or anything else you might have sitting around the cabinet....

Try adding orange marmalade, or peach preserve.
