The stopped making it. This is a catastrophe! The stuff is unique.

...or is it? Does anyone know of a comparable product? Or have you tried to replicate it?

There's an effort to recreate Woody's on another forum. I'll post a link later.

Cheers,
Michael

That should be "THEY stopped making it".

Big discussion here: http://www.mudcat.org/thread.cfm?threadid=102609&messages=144

I'll confess I never paid attention to Woody's Cook-In Suce before joining The Smoke Ring, but after seeing all the stuff here about it, it caught my eye on a local supermarket shelf this afternoon, so I bought a jar to try. The "Best By" date stamped on the lid is July 17,2008 (I checked before I put it in the cart), so it's not stuff that's on the verge of hitting its pull date.

Should I feel like Indiana Jones?

The other Woody's sauce was on the shelf also.

Hmm... there's been stuff posted here about Woody's? I did a search and found nothing.

Have you tried it yet, necron?

"The other" would be Sweet&Sour, yes? I'm not a fan of that, but the original...mmmm.

They're honing in on the recipe at Mudcat. I'll try to make some next weekend.

Cheers,
Michael

Yes, I found this thread, with the link to the mudcat site embedded, and read.

Yes, the other Woody's sauce next to it on the shelf was sweet & sour. I didn't buy any of that.

The cook-in sauce rang up at $2.49, slightly less than a bag of OCC Rancher charcoal. For that price, I'll give it a try.

Actually, I think I first found the thread about deleted posts, which mentioned this thread, then during Saturday night insomnia I went from this thread to the link in this thread and then on to Google. Interesting that there's such a fan base.

After seeing the jar, I'm sure I saw this on HEB shelves growing up in South Texas, but my mom never bought it.

If someone who's a fan of this stuff is coming to this area, I'd be happy to let them know where it is locally.

These folks also make a product they label as a 'cook-in sauce' and 'barbecue cocentrate', but I don't see it on their web site.

http://www.salandjudys.com/index.html

Their products are in the Winn-Dixie stores locally, and possibly chain-wide. That's where I saw their 'cook-in' sauce this evening while grocery shopping after work.

Here's "San Francisco Bill"'s Faux Woody's recipe from the Mudcat forum:

8 oz Tomato Sauce
12 oz Tomato Paste
6 oz water
1 cup Canola Oil
cup White Vinegar
cup Apple Cider Vinegar
6 Tbsp soy sauce
6 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1- 2 oz anchovy fillets - finely chopped - with the oil
1 - cup fresh squeezed lemon juice
2 Tbsp Paprika
1 Tbsp Onion Power
2 Tbsp Garlic Powder
1 Tbsp Coleman's dry Mustard
2 Tsp Mesquite seasoning
1 Tbsp Red Tabasco
4 Tbsp Hickory Liquid Smoke - Concentrated
4 Tbsp Mesquite Liquid Smoke - Concentrated
2 Tbsp Black Ground Pepper
cup white granulated sugar caramelized (It was pretty easy)!
I added the following, but it may have taken me farther from the true Woody's taste:
2 Tbsp McCormick Cajun Seasoning

This went into the slow cooker for 6 hours on Low, stirring once an hour or two.

I just noticed that the lid on my last Woody's jar boasts "Pure Hickory Smoke Flavored", so perhaps the Mesquite flavors aren't needed.

Thanks!

I looked at the Sal & Judy's stuff in a different grocery store yesterday. What they've done is put new labes on their BBQ Marinade and Cajun Maui Marinade that add the words "cook-in sauce". So these are on the Sal & Judy's web site, but the web site still shows the older version of the bottle labels. It didn't click until I saw bottles with both label versions sitting together on the shelf.
