There was a barbecue sauce in the D.C. area called "Bad News", made by former NBA basketball player Jim 'Bad News ' Barnes...the best sauce going!!! and the stopped making it 12-15 years ago.

I've been working on cracking the recipe for years and now have gotten very close....see link>>>

You’re doing it wrong.
Here in Carolina where we refer to our bbq grills as Carolina microwaves, we would not touch this frenchy sauce. Real men want manly things in their sauce!

Just sayin’.

> Why you hating on the tomato? This is all you need.
Can’t have tomato due to a medical condition that I’ve had for about 3 years now. It brings on a condition similar to an anaphylaxis reaction and my windpipe swells shut.
You have no idea how frustrating it is, bacause I love ketchup and pizza and spaghetti and ...

Looks GREAT! Make sure to post it on the weekly FR cooking thread!

We're not doing anything this weekend after losing a beloved pet. Just too depressed. Things should be back to normal next weekend and I intend to fire up some Bad News! Thanks!

Are you from East Carolina? Out west white BBQ RULES! Similar to Big Bob Gibson's sauce, Very popular at church and social gatherings.

Here in PA white BBQ sauce is unheard of but I make my own or get Big Bob's shipped in. Neighbors thought it was stupid until they tried it, LOL!

I remember that stuff. My Dad LOOOVED to grill with it!

We lived in Kemp Mill, in Silver Spring, MD outside of DC. Most of our neighbors were Orthodox Jews. My Dad would grill his ribs out on the patio. Our Orthodox neighbor came over one day and said to him, “Ray, you gotta quit doing that to me...”

Stubbs is great too. Very available here in Western Pa. Still my fav is

Big Bob Gibson's Original White Sauce.

Somewhere I have a recipe for a similar white sauce but it has lot's more kick! YUM! It includes LOTS of horseradish.

I don't have it handy because it's too hot for the family...sigh.

IIRC it has it's roots in Amish, PA Dutch cooking.

My favorite in yrs. past was Texas Best. They sold out to a big Co. and stopped making it.
Understand the original creator bought the recipe back and is making it again.
Can be had online. I keep meaning to order some.

semi-sweet, tangy, no oil so you can layer it on. Yummy

I am from SW South Carolina. To the men in my family, BBQ is almost a religion. They have a hash recipe (what’s a good bbq without hash?) that has been handed down through the family that is just great. But if I share it they will deprive me of any more hash.

I am a recent convert to East Carolina vinegar sauce. Tomato based sauce basically mask the taste of the meat. If you have tasteless meat, that is a good thing, I guess.

Well lookie here! I did a quick Bing and found basically the same as I have. Mine is not on my computer it's printed out and stored in my closet. I'll dig through later this week and FReepmail it to you. There are a bunch of my recipes I need to put on my computer anyway.

Be that as it may try this.

***IIRC The main difference I see with this and mine is that I don't use a blender because mine broke years ago and I never replaced it. I used a hand held mixer instead.

Big Bob Gibsons's Alabama White BBQ Sauce Recipe courtesy Don McLemore

Ingredients

1 quart mayonnaise
3/4 quart apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
Prepared horseradish
Lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Place all ingredients in a very large blender or food processor. (It may be necessary to do this in 2 batches; just add 1/2 of each ingredient and then repeat.) Blend for 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined and mixture is smooth. Pour sauce into a large bowl.

Use when grilling chicken; brush lightly over the chicken during the last few minutes of grilling. This sauce is also great for dipping; set some sauce aside for passing at the table.

If any of the bbq joints would learn how to cook pinto beans until they’re done, it would be a home run.

LOL! I completely understand!

Do the folks where you are make Burgoo? Big in KY and those parts.

Burgoo is a soup made from chicken, beef, and vegetables, cooked for several hours until the flavors have blended and the ingredients have become a thick stew. Arenzville burgoo is cooked in iron kettles over a wood-burning fire, which imparts a special smoky flavor to the soup.

When they say several hours the mean 12 OR MORE, preferably OVERNIGHT in huge pots outdoors with constant stirring. Again when I did it here outside in a turkey fryer the neighbors didn't think they'd like it but they were WRONG!

Used it at the block parties we'd have in our side yard but a few years ago we moved to an apartment which is easier for us to keep up.

The neighbors here are MUCH more food conscious than at our old house and we're talking about holding an apartment complex BBQ.

MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM...Salt Lick BBQ..I have fond memories of some of the best BBQ I have ever had and now have drool on my keyboard. However, I fondly remember Big Daddy's BBQ in Des Moines, IA where Big Daddy made flaming hot sauces with names like Emergency Room, Check Out Time and Last Supper.

Dump the idea of sauce altogether and go with a rub.

I stared using rubs instead of sauces several years ago, and I’ve never looked back. More variety, more flavor, more spices, more everything is available as a rub.

Just recently began injecting the meat. Apple juice, sugar and liquid smoke (since I do it in the oven instead of in a smoker).

I also use a rub, but my experience is that the flavors in the rub only extend to the outside meat.

IMO, nothing beats Zimmerhanzel’s in Smithville—about 40 miles from Austin.

Stubbs is the best store bought BBQ Sauce I have ever found. Every time I see somebody with KC Masterpiece or some such, I just shake my head in wonder.

The best BBQ sauce I ever had was the spice sauce at the Hickory Hut in Salina, Kansas. I wish they would sell their BBQ sauce on the net.

I will say the Hickory Hut is the best BBQ restaurant I’ve personally been to.

Here in California, you can’t get BBQ with a s#!t. Not that I’ve ever found.

Puree the above, then add the following

1/4 cup. Worcestershire
