Default Memphis BBQ Sauce Recipe?

I'm looking for a killer Memphis style bbq sauce recipe. Remember, there's heroes and there's legends. Heroes get remembered but legends never die. Share your best Brethren, and you'll never go wrong!

Yeah, looks like a good recipe.

When I was living in St Louis I'd occasionally go to Bandanas BBQ. They didn't have the best Q, but their "Memphis" style BBQ is still one of my all time favorite bottled BBQ sauces. I'd love to be able to replicate it. I've tried a few times (based on the ingredient list), but have never come real close.

It's a relatively thin, dark, smokey, spicey sauce that I'd call medium sweet.
