Daddy's Girl Craft BBQ Sauce

Daddy’s Girl Craft BBQ Sauce
I'm Betty Alexander and I am Daddy's Girl. My Pops was an avid "Pit Master" from Bedford Co, VA. His sauce recipes are now a family heirloom which I am honored to share with the world. A Pharmacist by trade, Dad was a true chemist in the kitchen. The first sauce he made was his favorite, a North Carolina Style vinegar-based. After a while friends and family requested that he make a sweeter sauce which he deemed "Sweet Redhead" after me, and he just kept cranking out new flavors from that point on. Thanks to all the other Pit Masters out there for joining me in honoring Dad's memory. Enjoy!
