    Please let us know. If you remain standing, I'll take that as a positive sign.

    If I were going to replicate this I'd do:

    4 parts light soy sauce
    2 parts honey
    1 part ketchup
    rice wine or distilled vinegar to taste
    I'd start with 1tsp each granulated onion and garlic if you were making a quart of this

    Then taste. I think I'd add some five spice. Hot pepper or sriracha to taste if you want heat (this has none).

    Ok...

    Consistency of a glaze. Color is dark reddish brown.

    Taste - soy, sweet, onion.

    Verdict - it's fine, but I don't think it's rave worthy. I'll try it on chicken tomorrow and see if it transforms. If not, I'll add some 5 spice and Sichuan peppercorn to it. I'm guessing this is a hit in MS due to the relative lack of Asian sauces there (I assume) and the fact that it IS good.

    Thanks, all; intriguing. Mark V you've provided the only explanation I've seen--double thanks. I just may give it a try through the link I provided or the store JGo37 identified.

    Here's the phone number to the Lee Hong Co. Grocery Store in Louise MS:

    (662) 836-5131

    the store closes at 5PM daily. I imagine you can buy Hoover Sauce directly from them paying shipping and handling. Online articles mention that Hoover Lee has shipped some around a bit.

    it's described as soy, sweet 'with spices'. I'd assume it's got some heat from Sichuan peppercorns, some five-spice, etc. Which reminds me... I need tp make something like that.

    The creator says he was trying for the flavor of roast Cantonese duck. There are recipes for that online so I assume you
    could find a recipe to make a similar sauce.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One


The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?


The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills.
