My father was the cook in the family. Any time we would go out to eat, he would come home and try to make a copy cat version. This is his barbecue sauce. I have never purchased any in the store because none of it comes close to this flavor. Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you. They are standard pantry items. It's easy to double the ingredients so you will have some always on tap!
