AN LBJ RECIPE

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Is the back­yard call­ing? A long lost recipe might come in handy. Wal­ter Jet­ton was known as “the king of BBQ” in Texas through­out the 1950s and ’60s, and was the fa­vorite chef, caterer and pit­mas­ter of Pres­i­dent Lyn­don B. John­son, who hosted many a big bar­be­cue at the 2,700-acre LBJ Ranch, some 50 miles west of Austin. Here is a recipe for the late chef’s fa­mous bar­be­cue sauce, verbatim from “The LBJ Cook­book,” pub­lished in 1965. Chef Jet­ton de­scribed this recipe as his “se­cret of the ages.”

In­gre­di­ents: 1 cup tomato ketchup, 1/2 cup cider
