Sure - pick one of these
Unfortunately - you'll probably only wind up with a chemical composition - not an ingredient recipe. Remember, the recipes for Original Coke, Dr. Pepper, and the KFC secret blend of herbs have never been duplicated thru chemical analysis.
If you just want the sauce for you and your kids - try asking Bob if he will sell it to you in quantity (pints or quarts).
If you think Bob's recipe is good enough to can and sell ... talk to him about it. He would probably cut you in on the profit for doing the work to put it on the market.
