BBQ sauce is a frequent help in fighting hunger. Its a panacea for all sorts of overcooked meats and mealy vegetables. But Coss Okie Red Dirt BBQ Sauce takes it one step further by joining Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma to Knock Out Hunger.
For every bottle of sauce sold, $1 is donated to the food bank, said Coss founder Ellick Cosby.
More people need to know about the problem of hunger in Oklahoma, Cosby said, and this is a delicious way to make a difference.

- Local artist Rick Sinnett puts finishing touches to some yellow fill in the KISS logo, one of many rock & roll iconic band photos and logos decorating the outside of Rock & Brews restaurant, 2737 W. Memorial Road, 10-27-15.
The KISS Army has helped transform the former site of Buddha Tao Asian Bistro and Dan OBriens Public House on Memorial Road into the new home of Rock & Brews.
Started in part by KISS members Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley, the franchise serves American cuisine burgers, pizzas, sandwiches and a selection of craft beers.
With 7,700 square feet to play with, including a patio, a bar and upstairs seating, the new restaurant opened Oct. 28 at 2737 W. Memorial Road.
Stanley and Simmons, which sounds like a dynamite mattress company, will visit the Oklahoma City location on Jan. 28 for a grand opening celebration to benefit local veterans and active military.
