In 2011, Food & Wine Magazine called Chicago-based Lillie's Q the "Best new barbecue restaurant in the country." Lucky for us, Lillie's Q decided to bestow the secret to their phenomenal 'cue – their sauces – upon the world.
This might just be the perfect barbecue sauce – no exaggeration. We could even eat it plain. Perfected over three generations and based in the deep-rooted Southern barbecue tradition of the Carolina region, this tomato and vinegar-based barbecue sauce starts off with a pleasant sweetness that bursts into a delicious tang, aided by Grandma Lillie's secret ingredients of apple- and lime-juice. It all comes together in savory wonder with the aid of spices like cayenne, garlic, onion and paprika.
