Charlene Hahn's Sweet 'n Hot Barb-Be-Que Sauce

Charlene and Duane Hahn, better known to cook-off competitors around Texas as the “Old Farts” team, contributed this recipe. This Temple couple says, “We live, eat, sleep, and breathe barbecue. We make anywhere from 40 to 45 cook-offs a year.” These active members of the Central Texas Barbecue Association admit that they’ve won and lost a lot of cook-offs, but they’re having a great time. “We told our kids when we went to that barbecue cook-off in the sky to just go ahead and divide the trophies because we were spending the money now,” confesses Charlene.

4 cups Heinz Chili sauce
2 cups maple-flavored pancake syrup
2 to 4 tablespoons honey or apple jelly to taste
