Intro to Recipe
It's still Spring but I'm looking forward to using this sauce along with my grilled specialties.
This great barbecue sauce that was a favorite around our house. My mother-in-law preferred a hot dog grilled until it was black, but I'm partial to a good barbecued meat such as chipped ham, pulled pork or even a steak marinated in this sauce.
Although I normally made this sauce on the stove top, this is also a great recipe to be made in the crock pot.

Base for Buffet Table Items
This sauce is great spread over chicken, steak, ribs or any other of your barbecuing meats. When we did hospitality rooms while honoring special guests to our area, we would make this sauce to be used as a base for sliced kolbassi, party weiners, or meatballs. It was always a favorite appetizer on the party buffet table.
GER Banquet Story
In years gone by, our district hosted a visit from the BPOE GER (National President of the Elks) in the early spring. Each Lodge would have a hospitality room filled with delicacies and treats to be enjoyed by one and all. In our hospitality room, this barbecue sauce was always present with either kolbassi or cocktail size hot dogs. It was always a favorite and we were proud to serve it each year.
