      I originally found this recipe in "Steven Raichlen's~ BBQ USA, 425 fiery recipes from all across America" on page 669. Since then, it's the only BBQ sauce I make! It's a hit every time I make it for family & friends who either request the recipe or any leftovers from what I made! If you like it with a little kick, just add some crushed hot peppers/ cayenne pepper. It freezes well too, so make a double batch to have it on hand throughout the summer... Enjoy!
