That led to a long debate as to what could, should, and would be in a "San Francisco-style" barbecue sauce. We decided it must include three of San Francisco's favorite things…the finest local chocolate and coffee, as well as oak-aged red wine vinegar, straight from the wine country.
Using those ingredients as our inspiration, we took our favorite Kansas City style sauce recipe and added spices and flavorings from Southeast Asia, China, India, Latin America, and the Mediterranean, and created what we think is a great, and truly unique barbecue sauce as culturally diverse as the city it represents.
This sauce is a labor of love, literally, and by the way, our very first dinner date, over 25 years ago, was at a local barbecue joint. Now, we are very proud to say that San Francisco has its very own original barbecue sauce! We hope you enjoy SFQ as much as we do!
