Thick and Sticky Barbecue Sauce

This is the kind of sauce typically associated with Kansas City, where such recipes are closely guarded secrets.

To finish his ribs and chicken at barbecue cookoffs around the country, Dr. BBQ combines 2 cups Thick and Sticky Barbecue Sauce with 1 cup honey and 1 tablespoon hot sauce in a saucepan and simmers the mixture for 15 minutes, until it is reduced and thickened.
