“This recipe is a secret. I actually stole it from my mom's recipe box. So...I thought why not post it for everyone to enjoy. It is thin and drippy, but it's one of those vinegar-based sauces and worth a try if you like those sort of toppings. Had it with a roasted pig (yummy in my tummy) and ate till I was sick. This recipe makes a gallon, so if you don't want or need that much, scale this down.”
