That recipe is a more closely gaurded secret than Bush's Baked Beans!!

Contact Hugh Hartsell, a member on this board and he'll be able to help you out. It's his fly...

It is a killer pattern for the Smokies though, good luck.

Someone told me you could find that pattern in a book by L.J. Decuir. This message will self-destruct in 30 secs. That is all.
