Jack's Secret Barbecue Sauce

  • 4-8 ounces of your favorite store-bought BBQ sauce (sweet)
  • 2 cups apple cider vinegar (white will work also)
  • 3 tblsp lemon juice (approx. 1 lemon)
  • 1 1/2 tblsp brown sugar
  • 1 tblsp Cayenne pepper
  • 1 tblsp hot pepper sauce (Tabasco, Frank's, Trappy's, Louisiana)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper (fresh ground if you have it)
  • Add more or less of your store-bought sauce, to your taste.

You don't have to cook this one! Just combine the ingredients, put in a jar with a tight lid (for occasional shaking), place in the refrigerator for a couple of days before the feast. Give it a vigorous shake once in a while.

If you are in a hurry, you may simmer the ingredients for about 25 minutes to serve immediately.
