I am sure there are some sauce tinkers like my myself on this site that have been experimenting with recipes for a while. After my local Costco ran out of Rays this past weekend, I found I need a backup plan.

I mostly duplicated the smoky KC style sauces, but I think I am hooked on Rays.

If you have a personal recipe or link to a sauce that closely duplicates Sweet Baby Rays Original BBQ sauce, please post it.

Why duplicate it? It goes on sale all the time for a buck a bottle around here.

Most restuarant suppliers carry the gallon jugs for 10-15 buxs.

I just picked up a gallon of texas pete's for $8.

Took me a while to get around to trying it but SBR IS VERY good .

I like the sweet onion for mixed co and the Sweet n Tangy for those " all about me " moments .

I can't resist adding a good shot of bourbon or dark rum to it. Other than that, it don't need much in the way of tinkerin'.

Used to use Sweet Baby Rays. My oldest got me some Jim Beam BBQ sauce, have used it a couple times. I've got a new favorite sauce.
