Oh man, are ya'll in for a treat! :) This Texas barbecue sauce is thick, semi-sweet and spicy. Not really hot spicy (just a little). If you are sensitive to spicy hot then omit the red pepper. This is pretty thick but can be thinned with additional broth or even beer. This is my signature sauce I made in my BBQ stand here in TX and it was a real hit, it took me around 6 months of trial and error to perfect it. I could have kept it a secret, but why. If you like really sweet and mild then this is not for you. This is a sauce you can use for mopping (basting) or as a dipping sauce or for sandwiches. Now.....Quit drooling and get to cookin! This sauce was made to compliment low and slow smoked meats, but hey, if you buy the stuff and you make it, it is your sauce, put it toast as far as I care! Ha ha. This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for big parties!!
