BBQ Sauce

Several months ago we wanted some BBQ sauce, but didn't want to make a special trip to the store for it, so we decided to make our own. We found a recipe off of the website and tweaked it a bit here and there and came up with this. Since then, I haven't bought another bottle of sauce. Nothing else seems to be as good! It has a lot of ingredients, but don't let that scare you. It's really easy to make.

BBQ Sauce

2 c ketchup
2 c tomato sauce
1 1/4 c brown sugar
1 1/4 c red wine vinegar
1/2 c molasses
4 t liquid smoke
2 T butter
1/2 t garlic powder
1/2 t onion powder
1/4 t chili powder
1 t paprika
1/2 t celery seed
1/2 t cayenne pepper
1 t salt
1 t black pepper

In a large saucepan over medium heat, mix first 7 ingredients. Season with last 8 ingredients.
Reduce to low heat and simmer for 20 min.
