If you think you've had good BBQ sauce, well, try this and you may just change your mind. And, when you prepare it, somehow it's just better.

    Lastly, as the sauce simmers, you can taste test to see if you prefer more "cayenne pepper." I usually use 1/2 tsp or a smidge more for my personal taste.
