    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    This recipe is a secret. I actually stole it from my mom's recipe box. So...I thought why not post it for everyone to enjoy. It is thin and drippy, but it's one of those vinegar-based sauces and worth a try if you like those sort of toppings. Had it with a roasted pig (yummy in my tummy) and ate till I was sick. This recipe makes a gallon, so if you don't want or need that much, scale this down.

      I usually don't like BBQ sauces with ketchup, but as an alumnus, when I saw NCSU wolfpack in the picture, I had to try. Great sauce!

      Yummy! This deserves more than 5*'s! I made 1/4 of this recipe as I did not have anything specific at the moment I want to use it for. I like to keep BBQ sauce in the fridge for sudden impulses! I love the versatility of this recipe! DH prefers his sauce a little less sweet and I love it either way, therefore next time I can easily decrease the brown sugar some to suit his tastes. I did not add the water and the sauce has a nice thickness to it, just right. I would add the water to thin it, depending on what I wanted to use it for. I will probably first use it just to dip grilled chicken tenders in, therefore I will not thin it for this. I love the flavor that the onion imparts in the sauce. I did strain most of the oil off of the onion before adding the other ingredients. I am not sure if this was what the recipe poster intended or not, but I did not feel the sauce needed all the oil left from sauting the onions. I don't feel it detered from the quality of the sauce nor the flavor. Again, this is delicious! Thanks Redneck Epicurian! PS: Just submitted this review, but had to come back and add that this is going to be a favorite tailgating recipe for football games, whether it be on a real tailgate or our soft plush reclining "tailgates" in our den! LOL!
