    Nif's Note:

    Gloria Pitzer is known for copying famous foods, but making them healthy at the same time. "I take the junk out of junk food," says Pitzer. "You know what goes into my recipes." Gloria is careful to point out that she doesn't actually know what the big chains put in their food. "I don't try to dissect the foods and figure out the chemical ingredients," she says. "I never, ever try to steal anyone's secret corporate recipe. I just do my best to duplicate the taste." I have to admit that we don't have a Famous Dave's in Canada, but this is a great sauce. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and simmer over low heat for 30 to 45 minutes, until thickened. Remember that it will thicken when it cools a bit. Stir every 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Let cool and pour into a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth.

      Gloria states that this BBQ sauce keeps forever and a day, but I'm not making any guarantees!

      Very good BBQ sauce, not too ketchupy and not too sweet. I did cheat by using 2 ts coffee granules instead of 1 cup coffee. So, no probs with too much liquid, here. Perfect! Made ribs with method Low & Slow Oven Baked Ribs - Super Simple!.

      I was looking for a new BBQ sauce for grilled chicken. Family loved it! I cut the recipe in half as I did not need 6 cups. It came out a bit more watery than I like, but after it cooled and was in the refrigerator for a couple of days it thickened up. Made for Pot Lock Tag Game. Thanks Nif!

      I wanted something on the grill and decided to try a new BBQ Sauce. I chose this one because it had lots of good but simple ingredients that I had already on hand. I whipped this up and used on some chicken. It was so good, and I especially liked it! I look forward to having it on some shrimp real soon! Thank you for sharing your recipe with us Nif! It's a great one! Made for Newest Zaar Stars 4/09 Linda
