Here are two recipes from Oregon, modified for home use.

1 cup Heinz ketchup
1 cup apple butter
1 cup Catalina dressing

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
8 hamburger buns


Combine all of the ingredients except beef and buns to make a barbecue sauce. 
Mix barbecue sauce into the meat and then spoon into a 2-1/2 quart baking dish. 
Cover tightly. Bake at 375F degrees for 45 minutes or until piping hot.

For the A&W Chili Dog Sauce: In a 2 quart saucepan, brown the ground chuck, 
breaking into very small pieces; season with salt and pepper lightly while 
cooking. Do not drain the fat. Add the remaining ingredients and simmer, 
uncovered, for 30 to  45 minutes until it thickens. Stir occasionally.

what you need later.

rolling boil.

Remove the saucepan from the heat, and add the desired number of frankfurters 
to the water. Cover and let sit about 10 minutes. After the franks are done, 
microwave the chili dog sauce until steaming. Only microwave what you need, 
save the rest Then microwave each hot dog roll 10 seconds....just enough to
