Love's BBQ

Love's Barbecue was a favorite in California. There is no actual recipe for their basting sauce on the Internet as far as I know.

There is a scan of Love's menu and a possible sauce recipe here: Old LA Restaurants

You can buy their bottled sauce here: Love's BBQ

There are a few Love's recipes or clones on my site:

Love's BBQ Beans

Love's Baked Beans

Love's BBQ Chicken & BBQ Sauce

Love's BBQ Cole Slaw

Love's BBQ Rib Glaze

No luck:
