  • Prep. Mix together all the ingredients in a saucepan with a whisk.
  • Heat. Warm the ingredients over a medium low heat. Don't let it come to a hard boil, just a few occasional light bubbles. Cook for 15 to 30 minutes. Then pour into a very clean bottle.
  • Serve. Use the sauce as you would any barbecue sauce or refrigerate until ready to use.
