Hot sauce on BBQ

Some friends on another group have been discussing a couple of black owned BBQ places in Gainesville, FL back in the 60's-70's. The places were named Pres and Ed's and Parkers. Apparently they competed with each other to have the hottest sauce in town. Now this was long before the chicken wing craze hit so these sauces were meant for the BBQ meats, pork, goat etc. At one time one of them had 13 different sauces on the menu with varying degree of heat.
I've eaten quite a bit of BBQ but putting a hot sauce on it never appealed. I do like a somewhat spicy sauce and also willing to eat it sauce free if the meat is tasty enough but these guys seemed to make it pretty much all about the sauce.
