I must make sauce!

The time has come for me to make my own BBQ sauce. For the last few months I have purchased store bought sauces that undoubtedly are made from many artificial additives and preservatives. I have the tools to make something myself and BBQ sauce be frozen so it will keep indefinitely. The next question is what type of sauce to make. I have always been a fan of ketchup based sauces with a sweet, smoky flavor. I have tried vinegar based sauces before and while I think they go pretty well with pork, Sweet and Smokey is the way to go in my book.

If anybody has had any success or recommended ingredients or recipes please let me know. I will work on this weekend. Tonight I will be making some pulled pork. Recipe will follow tomorrow!

Unfortunately my photography is not on par with my cooking. I picked up that photo off a google. I do want to get a new camera and start taking some better shots. I still have have a 4 year old 3 mega-pixel clunker from my college days.
