    I like it also. I put it on brisket. As for a recipe, don't have one. the Famous Daves is only about five minutes away from me.

    Have tried it also, is my favorite sauce for beef. If oyu can find it, Famous Daves Georgia mustard is real good on chicken or pork. But sorry, no recipes. I've just started to make my own sauces and we are still in the experimental stages [​IMG] .
  4. I have tried it Ken. Pretty good stuff, I use the devil spit sauce on my smoked chix wings.

    My local grocery stores carry it from time to time. I stock up when I see it. Apparently Famous Dave's is a national BBQ chain or restaurants. They have a website. May want to check it out for further info.


    There ya go.

    Famous Dave's is a chain out of MINNEAPOLIS, the "hot bed" of Que.
    Until this outfit started up there was ONE Q place there, Rudolph's, and I ain't too sure about it.

    There's a web site for recipes that have become famous.
    Jeff's recipes are Not there. Hope this is OK to post here. If not, just delete it.

    thats a group of ingreadents-don't care for daves.
  9. Wow. I guess I didn't know we had it so good here in Omaha. All the stores here sell Dave's sauces. I liked the Rich and Sassy for a while but grew tired of it. As far as bottled sauces go I like one called Stubb's. I think it's outa KC but since I bought Jeff's recipe I've been using that as a base to start making my own. It's not as easy or convenient but hey what else do I have to do when I'm home all day tending the fire? Well besides drink beer I mean....
    The Fam Dave sauces are good though. I don't blame you one bit.

  11. Another good sauce that I use from time to time is "Sticky Fingers" Better than famous daves and is great with chicken and ribs.

    Here is a link...pretty cool site. http://www.stickyfingersonline.com/

    sam........this recipe sez it is FOUR servings........but just the liquid is WAY over 4 cups ..........must be one HECK of a serving size........wow

    plus, just the expense of these ingrediants.......i think finding a famous daves and buying it there, would be a heck of alot cheaper
