Honey, corn syrup, or agave nectar all work.

Corn starch is another option, gives it a glossy, reflective sheen.

set the sauce that you use then glaze the previously set sauce with agave nectar. i like the amber and sometimes i add a some adobo to break the sweetness of it a little bit.

Not much corn starch is needed, just a tablespoon or two for a gallon batch should give you the shine. Be sure to mix it well to a cold liquid before adding to the sauce, and if there is a lot of vinegar in the sauce you may want to have a stick blender on hand to mix it in. You don't want it affecting flavor or thickening it, so keep the amount added small. It is a reflective substance naturally, and just having it suspended in the sauce will show the reflectivity. Arrowroot is also supposed to have a similar effect, but I have never used that.

I took some pics of a brethrens sauce recipe I made up that used corn starch for shine. I'll see if I can dig up the pics. I think I took before and after pics of the corn starch addition to show the difference.

I was wrong, the corn starch was added at the beginning of the recipe so no before/after pics. But here is is all blended up (recipe used a stick blender). There are a lot of chunky bits still remaining but I think the reflectivity is pretty apparent in this pic.

1 cup of apple juice to about 3/4 cup of pure cane sugar, adjust to suit your preferences. Its a good base to mix and match flavors, add cherries or honey or mango or chipotle or catsup for the tomatoe base flavor. Put it on the stove on a slow boil for at least 30 minutes to reduce. It will be sweet but in a good way and will shine like the moon, lol.

How can you forget Texas pepper jelly? 2 cups of sbr's honey chipotle, 1 cup Bragg ACV and 1 cup of apple habanero jelly is a kick ass rib glaze!

Just tried out the cherry habanero jelly on a rack of ribs this past weekend, came out shiny with a sweet and lil kick at the end. Next one im going to try is the pineapple habanero one.
