This BBQ Sauce recipe is a Kansas City-style barbecue sauce that is the perfect blend of sweet and tangy with a hint of a smoky flavor.
In a medium saucepan, add ketchup, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, molasses, liquid smoke, butter, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, celery seed, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper. Mix well and bring to a simmer.
After the sauce has come to a simmer, reduce heat to low for 20 minutes. For a thicker sauce, keep in on low heat for a little longer. Add a little water to the sauce if it is too thick.
Serve warm. Or, store the cooled sauce in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
