Hi, I loved your food and the service was awesome. We had ever had sickle pickles before and loved them along side with your great bbq. I bought your spices. Can you tell me the recipe of the sauce you put on your okra. I loved it and was wanting to make the sauce and thought it was your spice mixed with sour cream or Mayo? Can you help a hungry girl out in Vegas?
