Late last week the Old Irving barbecue mecca started selling their Memphis style sauce ($5.95) in original and spicy at the restaurant, online and, soon, at City Provisions in Ravenswood.
The first run is only 4,000 bottles. So get them while you can and tell The Stew if the bottled version is as good as the stuff you get at the restaurant.
A first run bottle of Smoque BBQ sauce could make an excellent hostess gift for the next barbecue party you attend, especially if it's at the Teamster's house.
I bet this is still better than Hawgwash BBQ's 2nd place at the Red, White & Blue BBQ Event.
But Bowen will beg to differ.
