While rooting through old issues of Western Living we found plenty of columns worth reviving in print (our Letters to the Editor was not one of them—turns out mean comments have been a thing long before the internet). One of our favourites is the recipe contest. We challenged home cooks across the West to send us their best recipes, and printed the winners. Here’s a 1982 classic for your next barbecue: David Wei's salmon barbecue sauce.
