  1. Mix ketchup, brown sugar, molasses, liquid smoke, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper and beer in a saucepan.
  2. Heat to a quick boil, then simmer, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens slightly (5 to 10 minutes). While still warm, pour into a canning jar or airtight container.

This was super good, although I tweaked it a bit. I halved it, used a fresh large garlic clove instead of powder, and added some cumin, chili powder and salt. I also didn't use any molasses and it was plenty sweet. I blended it all together in a blender, put it in a crock pot and cooked thawed chicken thighs in it on high for about 5 hours. The family raved about it, including my daughter who doesn't like BBQ. Easy and great!
