Aunt Julia’s Barbecue Sauce

  • Total Time:
  • Servings: 1 quart

Linton Hopkins's aunt Julia--"my paternal grandmother's sister-in-law," he says--made giant vats of this barbecue sauce on her farm in Alabama, then drove around delivering it to everyone in her extended family. Hopkins likes to spoon it over coffee-cured pork shoulder. "To have a meal in the South without roast pork is not really a meal," he says.
