Ollie's BBQ Sauce - B'ham

Dave T | Jan 2, 200405:54 AM

I spent many summers growing up in Birmingham with my grandparents, and Ollie's BBQ was a staple food. Since then, any time a family member was in Birmingham we'd make a point of picking up a couple of gallons of Ollie's sauce, which would hold us for a while.

While having the traditional pork roast yesterday, I was informed by my parents that Ollie's BBQ has *closed* (I knew it moved) and that they can't find the sauce -- which was reported to be available at local grocery stores.

So, my question is threefold:
1) Is Ollie's sauce obtainable?
2) If not, can we reverse engineer an "open source" recipe for same?
3) Can anybody recommend a worthy alternative?

I'm already working it through in my head -- vinegar, pepper, butter?, hmm... but does anybody have any more 'proprietary' information on this?

Heartbroken in Annapolis,
