This is by far the best clam chowder recipe ever. My Mom used to make this and there was never any left for the next day. I use minced clams because I don't like the whole ones, but whole clams can be substituted easily.
This is a great recipe. It was given to me from a very dear friend. I use it on babyback ribs that I put in foil pan and cover with onion and sauce and cook on the grill on low for 4-5 hours. Hope you enjoy. For hot and spicy bbq sauce add optional tobasco. Prep time does not include overnight refrigeration
