Weekly Recipe – LBJ’s Favorite BBQ Sauce

Happy Labor Day to all of the hard working REALTORS and Associates in the area!

Brief History (from the Department of Labor) – Labor Day was created by the labor movement and it celebrates all of the achievements and contributions made by American workers.  The first Labor Day was celebrated over 100 years ago in 1882 in New York City when the Central Labor Union adopted a Labor Day proposal.

Labor Day is a day for the American cookout.  Below is former President Lyndon Johnson’s favorite barbecue sauce.  This was an original recipe from former first lady Mrs. Lyndon Johnson “Lady Bird.”
