I made this last night, and thought it made for a passing ketchup-based BBQ sauce, but it wasn't quite Arby's sauce. I altered it and it's closer now. Not quite there, but it passes muster. I added a half-cup of Apple-Cider vinegar (I would imagine malt vinegar might work as well) and used a full teaspoon of hot sauce (I used Louisiana Hot Sauce). This took out some of the ketchup flavor and made it closer to the Arby's Sauce goodness. It has a tad more kick, but not so much that it didn't seem like a close facsimile...
