BBQ Sauce from scratch... Who knew?

Sooooo I know that it sounds way "fancy" as my friend Chay says I cook, but honestly it is so easy to make your own BBQ sauce and it doesn't have all the ick" in there.. (ick being hfcs- high fructose corn syrup). So I set out to make the perfect sauce and I think I have gotten pretty close.. ;) *I doubled the recipe and also made some pulled pork in my crock pot, for pitas the next night. Just added 2 cups of water and 6 more ounces of tomato sauce... 

This recipe calls for...
