We've all heard about a broken down, Barbecue Joint on a dusty, back road with an old guy in overalls,working the pit. In this tale, the person telling the story says that the guy at the pit told them about his secret barbecue sauce recipe that his uncle shared with him on his death bed, swearing him to never give the recipe to anyone out of the family.... blah blah blah!
I've been told this story in different forms for the past 50 years.
Below is the best BBQ sauce recipe on the planet. If it makes you feel better, swear an oath to your uncle Joe, not to give this out!
