1 quart ketchup
1 quart vinegar -- (amber 4% acidity)
10 ounces sugar
8 ounces salt
4 ounces black pepper
4 ounces crushed red pepper
1 dash red cayenne pepper -- ground

Preparation / Directions:

Combine all ingredients into a 1.5 gallon stock pot along with 1 gallon of water and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Spoon the piping hot dip onto the prepared meat just prior to serving. This is a very thin sauce, but it is the same formula that has been used around here for generations. This recipe was posted a while back by the son-in-law of the owner of Lexington #1, a highly regarded Q-joint. There is a certain amount of vagueness about whether the measurements are by weight or volume. I used weight for the dry ingredients and am very happy with the results.
