I improvised a lot on this recipe. I needed a quick barbecue sauce. I only used 1 Cup of ketchup, 1 Cup Water, 2 TBSP Brown Sugar, salt/pepper, 2 TBSP Butter (melted) and mixed them all together and popped the bowl in the microwave and 3 minutes later it was perfect! I used it on pulled pork sandwhiches I slow cooked all day long.

This was pretty good barbecue sauce recipe. I normally like it a little sweeter and a little spicier. I made 1 batch with the recipe as described, but found it sort of bland. So I made another, but this time I sauteed the onion with some chili powder in the melted butter, added a tablespoon of brown sugar, replaced the celery seed and green pepper with a stalk of celery, and swapped the lemon juice for lime juice. That was just the kick it needed! The second way only took about 5 minutes more. The basic sauce is definitely worth a try, and lends itself well to some creativity!

A basic bbq sauce should include: 32oz of ketchup, 1 cup brown surgar, 1/3c of worchestershire sauce, and 1/4c vinegar. This recipe would work if you increase brown surgar and added the worchestershire sauce and vinegar. Hot pepper sauce or cayenne pepper optional.
