    i was watching your cooking segment on wgn news, and even though the food that was being prepared looked delicious, i couldn't help but think to myself, 'i hope that flying hair doesn't end up on the food'.

    The BBQ sauce used at El's Kitchen is actually "Sweet Baby Rays". You can find it at your local grocery store. Come in for a good laugh at their dj Dan Allen. I was embarrassed for him-great laugh though.
