Homemade Barbecue Sauce

This is a pretty simple recipe for a sweet & smoky BBQ sauce.  If you want to use this as a starting point, you can add additional seasonings, pureed fruit, a few tablespoons of honey, change up the spices, etc.

1 1/2 cups dark brown sugar, packed
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
3 tbsp liquid smoke
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon ground mustard
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon paprika
1/8 teaspoon cayenne powder
salt and pepper to taste

Add ingredients to a bowl and whisk until the sugar has dissolved and the spices are distributed.  Use this to marinate chicken, shrimp, or serve as a dipping sauce.  Store in the fridge or freeze for later use.
