A sauce of some substance
Mike was driving home to LA from a business trip to Kansas City. In Arizona he sees an elderly man walking on the side of the road. He stops and asks if he would like a ride.
With a silent nod of thanks, the elder got into the car.
Driving on, Mike tries in vain to make a bit of small talk with the man. The old man just sat silently, looking intently at everything he saw, studying every little detail, until he noticed a brown bag on the seat next to Mike.
"What in bag?" asked the old man.
Mike looked down at the brown bag and said, "It's a bottle of barbecue sauce from Arthur Bryant's. I got it for my wife."
The old timer was silent for another moment or two. Then speaking with quiet wisdom, he said:

As far as store bought sauces, I like Bone Suckin' Sauce the best. It's sort of a sweet sour flavor, less sweet than Sweet Baby Ray's. Google up and see where it's sold nearest you. It's elusive. My 2nd best is Famous Dave's Original I have to spiff both my fave's with a shake of Tiger Sauce which is sweet hot peppery Asian type sauce, not a bbq sauce, and sometimes I add a shot of vinegar.
