My Favorite Homemade Barbecue Sauce For Meats

Norma DeRemer


A friend of mine gave me this recipe back when I lived in Ohio back in the 1960's and have used it ever since. Family and friends love it and always has asked me for the recipe. Even my son Chef Aaron up in Alaska like's this sauce. For a milder sauce I some times omit the worcesterhsire sauce when making it. Both ways we all like it.
