Suggestions for Homemade BBQ sauce?

This weekend, my bf and I made BBQ sauce, and might I say, it was pretty tasty for our first collaborative attempt. I will say, the addition of a local avocado honey was a delicious addition!

We didn't use a recipe, just our tastebud knowledge. He works as a BBQ grillmaster for a couple catering companies, but they each only use one sauce (made by their own recipes).

So, BF wants to start making various (completely homemade) BBQ sauces, and I thought I'd ask if any of you would want to share any of your expertise on the subject

This is the sauce we use in central New York for chicken barbecue.

Please give it a try and let me know how you like it.

Cornell Chicken Barbecue Sauce/Finger Lakes Marinade Recipe
Developed by the late Robert C. Baker, Professor of Poultry Science and Food Science.

Recipe for Barbeque Sauce (enough for 10 halves):

1 cup cooking oil
1 pint cider vinegar
3 tablespoons salt
1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 egg

Beat the egg, then add the oil and beat again. Add other ingredients and stir. The recipe can be varied to suit individual tastes.

My favorite is one I ganked from an Emeril recipe for pulled pork sandwiches. It's basically 1:1 ratio of apple cider vinegar and ketchup, plus brown sugar, molasses, yellow mustard, cayenne pepper to taste, and salt. I usually mix the salt and sugar into the vinegar first, then add the rest once they dissolve. Once all is mixed, let flavors marry for a while and it's done. No cooking necessary.
It never lets me down. It's got a brighter, more acidic flavor than cooked sauces and I prefer it hands-down.

I only use the BBQ sauce in this recipe, never bothered with the rest. If you decide to try it, I recommend subbing cayenne pepper instead of pepper flakes in you want to use a squeeze bottle. I've always had trouble with the pepper flakes clogging the bottle.

BBQ Sauce #1
1/4 cup tomato puree
1 cup dark brown sugar
2 tbs. Lee & Perrins Worcestershire Sauce
a dash of mesquite liquid smoke
1/4 tsp. ground mustard
1 tbs. honey
1/2 clove minced garlic
1 tbs. finely minced onion
2 tsp. chili powder

Heat and stir until the sugar is completely dissolved. Taste and adjust to what you like.

BBQ Sauce #2
1/2 cup honey
3 tbs prepared yellow mustard
Stir together and taste. Adjust as required.

BBQ Sauce #3
1 - 15 ounce can crushed pineapple, with juice
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
1/2 onion, finely mined
1/2 tsp. granulated garlic
1/2 cup chicken stock
2 tbs. soy sauce
Combine all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium heat. Using a candy thermometer, let simmer until you reach the syrup stage. Pour all ingredients into a blender/food processor and blend until smooth. Use as a sauce or glaze.

BBQ Sauce #4
1 cup white sugar
1 cup water
Juice of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 lemon
1/8 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic
Combine all ingredients and cook over medium heat, stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved. This sauce is great with grilled seafood, chicken, pork, and ham.

This should give you some ideas of possible variations.

Thank you all!
I really appreciate the recipes!

AuntBea - that was so kind of you to share!

NoMayo - I love Emeril's recipes too - and it's so funny you mentioned the flakes - we'd used the mortar/pestle to grind red flakes yesterday, but after realizing the little buggers didn't want to be completely ground, it hit us that both of us like Cayenne better anyway, and did that switch. :)

LWotN: Thank you for ALL the ideas!
PS: (I still remember your famous pancakes from many years back :) )
