The secret's in the sauce...( :

Ruth & Idgy's house

"At seven-thirty, Big George had already started slaughtering the hogs and started the water boiling the the big black iron pot--a little early in the year, but not too soon.
Later that afternoon, when Grady and the two detectives from Georgia were questioning his daddy about the missing white man, Artis had nearly fainted when one of them came over and looked right in the pot. He was sure the man had seen Frank Bennett's arm bobbing up and down among the boiling hogs. But evidently, he hadn't because two days later, the fat Georgia man told Bid George that it was the best barbecue he had ever eaten, and asked him what his secret was.
Big George smiled and said, 'Thank you, suh, I'd hafto say the secret's in the sauce.'"
