A copycat of the famous Sweet Baby Ray's Barbecue Sauce. In my experience there is little to no need for the cornstarch slurry, but it's there as an optional step in case you want your sauce thick. Personally I just use a little of the slurry because the 10-15 minutes simmering time would already reduce the sauce and it would continue to thicken while cooling.
