    This is my favorite recipe of all recipes! We used to eat there in the “olden” days. It was a bait house/b.b.q. joint/gas station/beer barn. They had it all.
    No restaurant has come close to this sauce.

    Crestwood Barbecue Sauce

    This is the recipe I use 99 times out of 100!! Not sticky sweet, a little tart!!

    4 quarts Campbell’s Tomato Juice
    1/2 pint Heinz apple cider vinegar
    1 pint Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 pound dark brown sugar
    1 tablespoon salt
    1 teaspoon black pepper
    2/3 cup onion powder (not salt)
    1/2 cup garlic powder (not salt)

    Stir all ingredients together and bring to a boil. It is not necessary to boil for more than 2 minutes.

    This was the sauce used by Elliot and Mildred Bennet when they owned Crestwood Barbecue here in Waco. I have never had any sauce that was equal to this!!

    I found the recipe years ago in “The Great Chefs of Waco”-presented by Historic Waco Foundation, 1987.
