Can someone please tell me how to make basic brown gravy? My grandma used to make the best but I was still young when she passed away and never found out how she did it.

I take the runoff juices from the roast, ham, etc and bring it to a boil in a saucepan. Then slowly drizzle in some cornstarch mixed with cold water, stirring constantly. It doesn't take long for it to thicken. Then salt & pepper to taste.

KFC's seems like it's probably not much more than a thickened stock and then seasoned to taste.

I found this KFC recipe

KFC Gravy

1 1/2 tablespoons shortening, melted
3 tablespoons of Original Breading Flour
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
1 can Campbell's Condensed Chicken Stock
1 can water

First we are going to make a roux with the melted shortening and 1
1/2 tablespoon of breading flour. Cook this over low heat for 10 to
15 minutes or until the roux browns in color to resemble a nice milk
chocolate color. Once the mixture turns brown remove it from the heat
and add the remaining flour and slowly add the liquid(s) to
incorporate it so no lumps. Bring the mixture to a boil and boil for
2 minutes reduce the heat and allow the mixture to thicken which
would take about 3 to 5 minutes.
*That is just the flour that you use to bread the chicken with.
