How to Make Smokr's Homemade bar-b-q Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Put the finely chopped onion and butter in a skillet and brown the vidalia.
  2. While the onion is browning, mix all remaining ingredients in a mixing bowl.
  3. After the onion is browned, add the remaining ingredients to the browned onion. Saute the mixture on "low" heat for 20 minutes.
  4. 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.
