Flint’s BBQ, located in San Francisco’s East Bay cities of Oakland and Berkeley was a small family (from the Carolinas) run business that gained legendary status for its BBQ sauce. Flint’s sauce was a deep, rich red color with complex layers of lingering flavor. Unfortunately flint died during the mid-2000s and the wonderful sauce recipe was lost to the public. I think it would have been possible to cook a leather shoe in this sauce and make it absolutely delicious. It was that good.
This might be your only opportunity to experience this magnificent BBQ sauce. It is a collectible recipe certainly worthy of preserving as an important element of BBQ history.
