Be good be good!

Be good Be good
Be good be good be good
Be good be good be good be good (Johnny)

-- Men At Work

For the longest time, Joltin' Django's had three favorite BBQ sauces: Stubb's and Sauer's, both of which are commercially available, and Irish Picnic BBQ Sauce, which is only available each July at the Irish Picnic in McEwen, TN.

I've just added another sauce to my list of favorites: Johnny Harris Famous Bar-B-Cue Sauce. It's a good Southern-made sauce! To wit:

One thing I can't stand is a sweet BBQ sauce. Stubb's and Sauer's ain't sweet, and Irish Picnic sauce especially ain't sweet. Johnny Harris Sauce lists sugar on its list of ingredients ... after some dozen other ingredients.

Johnny Harris has just the right blend of tomato and vinegar, with a generous helping of black pepper-infused heat. I put a generous dollop - actually about five generous dollops - on some country pork ribs I cooked tonight, and damn they was good.

Get you some Johnny Harris BBQ sauce one of these days. You'll be glad you did.
