BBQ Sauce

Home Made BBQ Sauce 
Homemade BBQ sauce
This BBQ sauce came from a book I had picked up from the library. Sadly, I don't remember which book I got this recipe from. One summer I was checking out every book on grilling my library had. I wanted to become a grill master. Yeah, that hasn't happened. This summer I definitely plan on grilling more. What will you be grilling this summer?

Homemade BBQ sauce
Sweet and Smokey BBQ Sauce

2 cups ketchup
3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
2 tablespoons yellow mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce 
2 teaspoons paprika 
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 tablespoons molasses
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon liquid smoke 

Put everything in a medium saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. 
Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 20 minutes  or until slightly thickened.
