Homemade barbecue sauce is the key to restaurant-quality barbecue at home. Sauce will keep for one week in the refrigerator and about three months in the freezer.

Servings: 5 cups

   1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
   1 large onion
   3 cloves garlic
   1 lemon

   1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
   3 cups ketchup
   2 Tbsp. horseradish
   1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce
   1 tsp. liquid smoke
   3/4 cup granulated sugar
   1 Tbsp. dry mustard
   1 tsp. salt

Prepare vegetables
Mince the onion and garlic and set aside. Melt butter in a large sauce pan. Add onion and garlic and saute until tender, 3 to 5 minutes.

Add liquid ingredients
When onion and garlic are tender, juice the lemon and add juice to the pan.  Add the cider vinegar, ketchup, horseradish, Worcestershire sauce, and liquid smoke to the sauce pan and stir.

Mix dry ingredients
In a small mixing bowl, combine sugar, dry mustard, and salt. Add dry ingredients to the sauce pan and until dissolved.

Simmer sauce
Bring sauce to a boil and reduce to  simmer. Simmer uncovered for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Use Barbecue Sauce with Barbecued Beef Ribs [1], Barbecued Half Chicken [2], or serve along with Meatballs [3].
