I'm not one to talk much about meat sauces and I can't claim this as "favorite", since I have not tried it.I do enjoy using Texas Toast to sop up the sauces on a fine plate of Q.

In an article on Franklin's Barbecue at this weekend's SXSW festival in Austin he gave this as one of their three sauces.

Since we have discussed his Briskets ,at length,I thought I'd share it.

"Sweet Sauce"
by Aaron Franklin

14 oz. ketchup
5 oz. water
2.5 oz. apple cider vinegar
2.5 oz. white vinegar
4.5 Tbsp. brown sugar
2.5 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 Tbsp. chili powder
.5 Tbsp. Kosher salt
.5 Tbsp coarse-ground black pepper
1 tsp. cumin

Mix all ingredients in a pot and simmer until the flavors are well combined, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat. Once cool, store in an air-tight jar or bottle in the refrigerator. “It should stay good for months!” says Aaron.
