This is from Paul Kir's barbecue book.Glaze this sauce on your chicken or pork ribs about 30 minutes before the end of the cooking time and you will be in the neighborhood of barbecue "king". It's also really good as a topping for hamburgers. Makes about 8 cups.
Here it is: the sauce from the sauce capital of the country. When people say barbecue sauce, they mean Kansas City barbecue sauce,thick, tomato rich, sweet and spicy. The old-style recipes like this one here, start with butter or bacon drippings, which makes them a little on the rich side
