Recipe Notes

I've often spoken of all the interesting and wonderful people who
cross my path. Well, Wayne Brokke is one of those people. Wayne had
seen me on QVC several times, and when the opportunity arose for a
trip to Savannah, he made a special point of coming in to meet me.
We had a great time getting to know each other. Wayne is the owner
of Wayne's Bar-B-Que in Baltimore, where he also does cooking
segments for a local television station. When I mentioned to Wayne
that I was writing another cookbook, he graciously offered to share a
few of his recipes. They are Wayne's Cranberry Sauce, and the
following recipe, which is a five-time winner of the Maryland Old Bay
Soupstakes Critics and People's Choice Award. Thanks, Wayne, and
continued good luck to you!
