I make Joe's every couple of months, here's my take. No measurements, I just eyeball it to taste and adjust.

Brown off ground beef, season (in place of salt) with beef base, add diced onion & red and green bell peppers. I'll add celery too if I have it.

Equal parts ketchup and tomato sauce, one can of stewed tomatoes.

Season with black pepper, granulated garlic, granulated onion, Tbsp smoked paprika.

To taste, brown sugar and balsamic vinegar. I also add a good squirt of yellow mustard.

Bring up to temp and simmer and reduce for a couple hrs. Adjust seasoning again before serving.

I forgo a bun and make pan fried sourdough croutons, and serve with tots and slaw.
