Kobefn....I am going to suggest you "develope" your own, personal to you, BBQ sauce.
I say this because any recipe I've ever given anyone, they always change it to suit their taste....their likes and dislikes...and that's ok. So maybe start with your favorite commercial BBQ sauce...and add this or that. Or start with a bottle of catsup as the base, and start adding, garlic, onion powder, chili powder etc. etc. After a lot of trial and error....some good sauces, as well as some bad ones you will develope.. Kobefn"s World Famous BBQ Sauce..... That's part of the fun!! It's an adventure!!

Have Fun & Enjoy!!

Here's mine for Mustard based sauce.

2/3 Cup Yellow Mustard
1/2 Cup Sugar (regular granulated)
1/4/ Cup Brown Sugar
1 Cup Cider Vinegar
2 Tbsp Chili Powder
1 Tsp Black Pepper
1 Tsp White Pepper
1/4/ Tsp Cayenne Pepper
5 Drops Tabasco Sauce
1/2 Tsp Soy Sauce

Mix all but Soy Sauce and Butter in a Sauce Pan and simmer for 15 minutes.
NOTE: Fumes will take your breath so be careful breathing this stuff. Stir in Soy Sauce and Butter after simmering 15 minutes is complete.

Okay, here's my favorite. Uncle Bob is right though. BBQ sauce is a personal or acquired taste. What I like might not play well in Memphis or Kansas City.

1/2 small onion, finely diced.
l tablespoon canola oil
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons blackstrap molasses
1/2 cup Creole mustard
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
2 ounces dark beer
10 ounces catsup
1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
1/2 cup cider vinegar

Carmelize onion over high heat with canola oil. Add garlic and brown sugar and reduce heat, stirring until sugar melts and darkens. Add all other ingredients and simmer, stirring occasionally, over low heat for 30 minutes.

Makes about 1 quart.

Here is one I did last night

I started with this as a base.
Ravenswood BBQ Sauce

It's a little too bitter for my tastes but it has nice heat and smokey flavors. I put that in a blender, added a jar of roasted red peppers, 2 tbls yellow mustard, 1 Tbls Balsamic vinegar, 1/4 cup bourbon, 1 tbls sugar and blended until smooth.

BBQ sauce is like a pot of chili - you make it to fit your taste.

I started off with a recipe for Southern BBQ Sauce from The Frugal Gourmet (the 1984 book by the same name) and this is what I came up with:

3 cups Beef Stock
1/2 cup grated Onion
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar
1/2 cup Prepared Yellow Mustard
1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1 (15 oz) can Tomato Sauce (or Puree)
1 (6 oz) can Tomato Paste
1/4 cup Dark Brown Sugar
1/4 cup White or Cider Vinegar
1/8 cup Liquid Smoke
1 tablespoon Black Pepper (finely ground)
1 tablespoon Garlic Powder (or 3 cloves finely minced)
1 tablespoon Chili Powder
1 teaspoon table salt

Just combine everything in a heavy saucepot - and simmer uncovered for about 2 hours until nice and thick. Stir frequently and keep an eye on it to keep it from burning/scorching.

Not to criticize your recipe but I see this all the time in not only BBQ Sauces but other recipes also.
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"?

I am in the "create your own" camp.

It is all a matter of personal taste, do you like smoky, sweet, vinegar based, mustard based...

And as for trying to reinvent the wheel, this is a wheel that is VERY easily reinvented. Not to mention, some of the shell bbq sauces that are thought to be good, pale in comparison to some house made ones bottom line. The best bbq places are not just known for the meat, it is all about the sauce.
