mom's best barbeque sauce

This sauce is really good on ribs or chicken. I don't like liquid smoke myself so I never add it to the sauce. It keeps really well in the fridge for a long time. Similar to Kansas City BBQ sauce - spicy and a bit sweet. You can adjust the heat to your taste by increasing or decreasing the amount of cayenne pepper.
