  1. i really want to make this, but what can an alternative to the soppin’ sauce be? the website says the store is inactive and no longer taking orders. would a barbeque sauce work just as well?

      You can definitely use BBQ sauce instead. The soppin’ sauce is very similar to a BBQ sauce base. Happy grilling!! :)
