Lady Bird Johnson's Barbeque Sauce

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Epi Curious

Butter is a traditional ingredient in old Southern-style barbecue sauces and it's responsible for a lot of flavor here. This is a thin, tasty sauce that both goves over the meat while it's being grilled and gets passed at the table, warm.

Top Review by Bill J.

I had this recipe since the '8o's. While I like traditional bbq sauce as well, this one is a pleasant change of pace because it's not sweet. We put too sugar in things as it is, so this fits the bill for me. It's also simple to make.
