Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce
Used Worcester shire sauce instead of liquid smoke because we were doing the ribs & chicken thighs on the grill with wood chips. After checking reviews, used peanut oil instead of butter (for table time) & left out celery seed. GREAT!! To answer one re viewer's question: back when it was do hard to find all natural foods, I had a young son who has hyper kinetic & could not tolerate additives, preservatives, artificial floors & colors, etc. He wanted ketchup for hot fries & burgers like his older brother so I tried to make some. Close but no cigar -- uuntil I found a recipe in a really old cookbook I picked up in a used book store (already really old when i got it back in the'70 lol). The one ingredient that makes ketchup taste like ketchup is -- tahdah!) Cinnamon!!

Flemish Frites - Belgian Fries with Andalouse Sauce
My Maman was from Belgium & taught me to make fries this way. Only difference, she used peanut oil because it is lighter tasting & you can crisp better & quicker because you can fry with peanut oil at a higher temperature. Peanuts originally come from India and peanut oil (a mono-saturate & therefore healthy) is the oil of choice for woks & other frying & sautéing in Asia & Belgium & France (don't know about other countries). My Maman always used Planters as some of the off-brands can small/taste rancid. While living in the South, I found the LouAna brand to be just as good. My Maman used peanut oil to make her own mayo, salad dressings & anything else that calls for veggie oil. In Belgium you can buy paper cones of Frites from stands on the street like you can get hot dogs in NYC. You have your choice of several sauces -- myself, I preferred Piccalillie so here at home, I usually use French's yellow mustard.
