Default Secret BBQ Sauce ???

I was watching Food Network last night and came across a show highlighting County Line BBQ in Austin, TX. They made their "famous" BBQ sauce but did not give amounts of each ingredient. This caused me to hit the internet in search of "copycat" recipes for the County Line BBQ sauce and try to figure out their recipe (for fun ). I didn't find their recipe but I came across an interesting article on a forum. It was particulary interesting because the sauce is made in my little ole hometown of Griffin, GA. Has anyone tried this sauce or have any comments about the legitity of this claim? Heres the post in question:

I have been eating at lot of BBQ restaurants in the southeastern . I found that lot of these restaurants have this unique tasting sauce in common, The best I can describe this sauce is, as if somebody took the smoky taste of the barbecue itself and put it in the sauce. I could never get anybody to reveal the secret recipe of the sauce. On my recent trip to Nashville I was eating a BBQ restaurant the Ribs were simply out of this world, and it had the same sauce, A twenty dollar tip to the waitress (No! she was not Blonde) did the trick, she got me the empty gallon with the label, if you are looking for it also here is the secret sauce is “Freshly Made Brand Mesquite Barbecue Sauce with Onions” made by Food Masters out of Griffin, Georgia. Their Website is www.foodmasters.com. This company also has web store for Restaurants and Retail Sales under a second site called www.dinnisselect.com.

From looking at the site you cant just buy it. You have to set up a business account with them first.

Im interested in trying it.

If you go to the retail site at www.dinnisselect.com it looks like anyone can order. i don't know if it is the same sauce, however.

Never heard of Food Masters until now, but similar to how Cattlemens sauce was only for restaurant & institutional sales prior to a few years ago.

If you look closely at the label in the link, you can make out all of the ingredients.

The only ingredient that rings my bell across the board is liquid smoke.

i'm not seeing the relation between County Line sauce, which your looking for the recipe for, and the articles comments on the similarity of the "southern" sauces (in the form of liquid smoke probably).

I mean, how does he (or you) know the "same" sauce was used in the place in Tenn where he ate the ribs (and is made in your home town), that is used at County Line in Texas??

I was just stating that I came across this article while searching for the County Lines BBQ sauce recipe. Theres no direct correlation between the two. Just curious if anyone else has heard of www.foodmasters.com that can vouch for the quality of the sauce.

I'd make it myself if I knew where to get some high fructose corn syrup, modified food starch and "natural flavors".

high fructose corn syrup is one you can thank the government for. Many years ago, most food products used liquid sugar. The government decided it was a good idea to subsidize corn products and along came hfcs. It has replaced liquid sugar in most things because it is cheaper, and that is because your tax dollars pay for part of the cost.
During parts of the year you can still buy Coca Cola (and maybe others, but I know about Coke) with real sugar. Its Kosher Coke and used to be distinguished by a red top instead of the usual yellow on the 2 liter bottles.

Rightstuff,
The website says they package in 55 gal drums. Maybe a source of UDS drums even if you don't like the sauce.
