Copy Cat Recipe for Richmond's Bill's Barbecue Hot Sauce

About 10 or 12 years ago--I now live in DC--I seriously approached them to see if they would consider franchising to the DC area, but they turned me down, because they were concerned that they wouldn't be able to control the quality. I missed it so much a couple of times I asked them to ship some by Fed Ex to DC, and they very sweetly accommodated me. I believe they could have done very well in tihe DC area, because everyone I served it to loved it. Oh, well . .

Copy Cat Recipe for Richmond's Bill's Barbecue Hot Sauce

I tried to replicate it a few years ago and came close, will have to do it again. I had used ketchup, yellow prepared mustard, hot pepper sauce like Frank's, but I could see using flakes and cayenne instead,; cider vinegar; sugar, and--I'm pretty sure this is key--a little allspice. Also tried a little clove in the alternative, and nutmeg. There's a sweet spice in there, I believe, we just have to play around with that. Kind of like Sauer's barbeque sauce, also from Richmond. And salt, and pepper. I didn't use MSG. Please see the ingredients below, taken from the bottle, from an earlier post. Bill's uses tomato concentrate, and not ketchup. But at the end the just list "spices", and that's where we are going to have to work at the right combo.
