Why the Black, White and Cayenne peppers? I can see where the Tabasco would add some flavor. But, wouldn't the different peppers cancel out the flavors of each other?
With all the selections of BBQ Sauces on the shelf, why try to "reinvent the wheel"?
White and black peppers taste different from one another. Cayenne pepper provides heat that's different from the peppercorns' heat. The flavors don't cancel each other out, they combine to create a new flavors.
If you buy a supermarket BBQ sauce and are perfectly happy with it, there is no need to go any farther. If you have tasted many sauces and think you would like one that was a little different from all those, it's worth creating your own.
