This is how I make my bbq. Sauce! Sometimes I don't have the molasses so I substitute with honey, and thin it out a bit.

Loved it. Very simple to make and so very good! I had all the ingredients at home to make it except for the molasses so it didn't cost hardly anything and it tasted do much better than store bought. I will definitely make this again. I am picky about what I serve my family and they have come to expect anything from my kitchen to be yummy. They weren't disappointed. Thank you so much for this Martha. You make me look like a chef.
