I often find myself without BBQ sauce in the pantry or (not enough) BBQ sauce left in the bottle. This recipe comes to the rescue and it is truly delicious. It tastes just like Sweet Baby Rays!!!

The 1st time I made this, my picky-picky husband came from another part of the house to see what smelled so good!!  It's quick and easy to make.

1 1/3 cup ketchup
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup molasses
6 ounce can of pineapple juice
2 tablespoons worcestershire
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
1 tablespoon mustard powder
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
2 teaspoons liquid smoke
1 teaspoon roasted garlic granules
1/2 teaspoon coarse ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/3 cup water

Put everything in a saucepan and whisk until it's all smooth and the seasonings are well mixed in.

Bring it all to a boil, then turn the heat down so you get a nice slow simmer (sort of the same simmer as if you were cooking rice).

Cook at a low simmer for 7 minutes. It will thicken a little after it's cooked and cooled.

Cover and chill. Stays good in fridge for about a month.

ENJOY !!!!!
