Granddad's Barbecue Sauce

This easy-to-make barbecue sauce recipe was contributed by Linda Waggoner in the Travis County Extension Office. It originated with her husband’s grandfather, who operated a barbecue stand for many years. Linda says, “Dab it on the meat with a swab or other brush if you have one, turn often, and keep dabbing the other side and then back and forth. We never did measure much.”

2 cups (4 sticks) butter (no substitute)
1/2 large bottle catsup
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
Dash or two of red hot sauce
1/2 large bottle of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup white vinegar
1 teaspoon chili powder

In a saucepan, melt butter and stir in remaining ingredients, varying quantities if desired to taste. Simmer for 15 minutes.

Makes 2 to 3 pints
