In 1964 a friend gave me a barbecue sauce recipe. It was mild and just the best sauce. Somewhere along the line I lost the recipe. I've done searches on the web, but can't find it, and it is impossible to locate my friend. The sauce had a bottle of catchup and a can of tomato soup in it. I can't remember the rest of the ingredients. If anyone has the recipe, I'd sure love to have it.

I don't know if this is the recipe you're looking for as it uses tomato juice rather than soup but it sounds similar. It's a bit 'sharp' so I tend to cut down the vinegar, but it makes a great sauce! From my grandmother's 1950 Betty Crocker cookbook:
Texas Barbecue Sauce ("For ribs")
Mix together and simmer 15 minutes-
1/2 cup finely chopped onion
2 Tbsp. brown sugar
1 Tbsp. paprika
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dry mustard
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup vinegar
1 cup tomato juice
1/4 cup catsup
1/2 cup water
I found this doing a search, hope its the one
TOMATO SOUP BBQ SAUCE
1 cup ketchup
1 can tomato soup
3 tbsps. prepared mustard
3 tbsps. brown sugar
Add dill pickle juice, to taste
Combine ingredients; mix well. Keep sauce refrigerated.
These all sound good.
If you can recall a particular brand name mentioned in the recipe, try contacting that same company.
3 cans tomato soup
1 1/2 cans water
1/2 bottle Kraft BBQ sauce
3 tbsp. brown sugar
Since I have done long searches on the web and can't come up with the recipe, I've come to believe that my friend 'invented' her BBQ sauce, so I think I will invent my own using a combination of ingredients from your recipes. Thank you so much for the input.
