Recipe by LauraBelleBlue

My mother made a version of this the whole time I was growing up. I "sexed it up" with a little spice and heat.

Great BBQ sauce but a tad hot for me. I used some epicure selections hot salsa mix for the red pepper mix for the peppers and it was still to hot for me. I used the chili sauce and it was a perfect consistency. Thanks for posting, I made this for Pick-a Chef spring 2007 :)
