Texas Style BBQ Sauce

This sauce is for those who like a tomato based spicy sauce. It contains hot peppers. Use this sauce to baste a brisket, ribs or whatever meat you are cooking. Serve along side the BBQ for dipping. Have plenty of cold drinks available for those folks needing a bit of cooling down. This recipe was originally feature on BBQ-FYI. com and has been modified by me to my tastes.
