I got this recipe from my friend Jeff years ago-this is the original recipe for the fantastic sauce on the ribs at the Famous Montgomery Inn Resaurant, Cincinnati OH., Jeff used to use 1/2 of the chili powder and add 2 t. red pepper, for his own personal taste.

I live in Cincinnati currently and I buy the bottled montgomery inn sauce regularly for shredded bbq chicken sandwiches. I was making the chicken last night and didn't realize until last minute I was out of my favorite sauce! Luckily I found this recipe for the copycat which saved the day. My husband said it was the best BBQ chicken I'd ever made and I will keep this recipe, it was great and I believe the original poster when he says this is the actual recipe. I didn't have the terragon vinegar, so instead I used 1 c. apple cider vinegar with 1 tsp dry terragon.

I grew up 2 miles from Montgomery Inn and have been eating their ribs for over 30 years. This recipe is very very close. Now in Minn., I am very glad to have it. Do not forget to heat it before using.

This BBQ sauce is totally awesome on ribs! I kept brushing it on during grilling and the ribs rocked! Thank you!
