This recipe has two main ingredients, fresh horseradish root and my favorite commercial barbecue sauce, which is Stubbs. Stubbs is an important brand for this recipe because it is not too sweet. You combine these two ingredients to make one really "kicked up" dipping sauce or spread for both prepared meats or veggies. You can use the horseradish sauce without the barbecue sauce and vise-versa if you would like, but the combination of both makes a really good special sauce. Note: Here in NY City, horseradish roots come and go in the supermarkets. You may need to find them in a specialty store (e.g. Koshur or Chinese). If you don't know what they look like, go to the root vegetable section. They look somewhat like parsnips, but are larger, darker and more earthy textured. Really fresh horseradish root will have small supple green leaves on the thicker ends.
