A lot of Dads will be grilling out for Father’s Day….some will even get a beautiful new grill!!!


This month I’d like to share with you a couple of our favorite BBQ Sauce recipes, one sweet and one savory!


The “sweet” sauce is the one we’re featuring this month and is a popular North Carolina mountain favorite! This delicious recipe, called “North Carolina Bar-B-Q Sauce” is simple to make, can be multiplied as many times as you need and is in my “Granny’s Buns” cookbook.


Our “savory” sauce, which is our all-time personal favorite, is a vinegar based sauce which is the official “state” sauce! You’ll find it in our index called, “North Carolina Bar-B-Que Sauce” in July 2011.


And while Dad is cooking, you and your guests can enjoy a delicious dip called “Buffalo Chicken Dip”, which is our 2nd featured recipe!

Bon Appetit!!!

North Carolina Bar-B-Que Sauce


1 cup catsup

1 cup light brown sugar

½ cup fresh lemon juice

½ cup butter

¼ cup Sweet Vidalia onions, minced

1 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp. Texas Pete (or Tabasco Sauce)


Place all ingredients in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil Reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. This recipe makes 2 cups of BBQ sauce.


Note: Popular southern sides are: Brunswick Stew, Cole Slaw, Corn-On-The-Cob, Potato Salad and always, Banana Pudding for dessert!

You’ll find Mother’s Banana Pudding in our index, May 2018. It’s the old fashioned “cooked” kind. But and Easier recipe is “Easy Banana Pudding” in our index, Feb. 2012.

Buffalo Chicken Dip


1½ cups cooked chicken, finely chopped  (I use deli-roasted chicken breast)

8-oz. cream cheese, softened

½ cup Buffalo Wing Sauce (I use Moore’s Original Buffalo Wing Sauce)

½ cup prepared Ranch Dressing

½ cup shredded Colby-Monterey Jack Cheese


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix everything together in a large bowl and spread evenly in a shallow lightly greased 1 qt. baking dish or an 8-inch square baking dish.. Bake, uncovered to 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with small baguette bread slices, 2-inch cut celery hearts or crackers.

Note: You can also mix everything together and cook in a crock pot on high for 1½  to 2hrs.

Avoid Lighter Fluid Flavored  Meat.
If you are using lighter fluid to start your fire, make sure that the fire is completely out before you introduce meat into the mix.
Soak wooden skewers in water to prevent burning.
Stay away from grocery store logs; most have been kiln dried and will quickly burn up producing little or no smoke.
