I am from southwest Tennessee; about an hour from Memphis.

I joined this forum because I am on a quest and I need other folks from the Memphis/West Tennessee area to help me.

Those of you who live in West Tennessee are most likely familiar with the little road-side "hole-in-the-wall" barbecue shacks. Those of you who have had the pleasure of eating at one of these places knows the owners use a very thin, but flavorful HOT barbecue sauce on their sandwiches.

I am trying to find a recipe of that type to make up and put on my home-made BBQ sandwiches. I found a decent sauce by Patrick Neely, but it's not the same thing. The sauce I'm talking about is really runny and dog-gone delicious.

Of course the actual owners won't tell how they make that sauce. I'm hoping somebody NOT in business has such a recipe they'd share with me. Thanks in advance for your help!!!

Another forum member suggested I use tomato paste in place of Ketchup to cut down on the sugar so the heat from my cayenne can come through better. Also I'm type-2 diabetic.
