I've made several BBQ sauces, and one of my favorites is Myron Mixon's "Tangy Sweeet" sauce, which is basically his vinegar sauce w/ peach preserves.

2 cups cider vinegar
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup hot sauce
2 tbsp salt
2tbsp black pepper
2 tbsp red pepper flakes
1/2 cup sugar (I used brown sugar)
1 cup light corn syrup
1 18 oz jar peach preserve.

Cook everything except the corn syrup and peach preserve in a pot, but don't boil.  When all sugar is dissolved and everything mixed together well, take off the pot and pour into a mixing bowl.  Add the corn syrup and peach preserves and blend together (a hand immersion blender works great) until everything is smooth.  Pour into a bottle(s) and serve.

I use the following ingredients Keith (I just add to taste, so I don't use specific measurements), so it's a good start anyway:             Ketchup
                                       Apple Cider vinegar
                                       Worcetershire
                                       Brown Sugar
                                       Molasses
                                       Garlic powder
                                       Onion powder
                                       Paprika
                                       Dry mustard
                                       Cracked black pepper
                                       Cayenne powder
                                       Chili powder
                                       Can(s) of pureed chipotles with sauce
                                       Liquid smoke
            1/  I like Texas style sauce best, which is not very sweet and is spicy.  For that I use very little brown sugar, but increase the worcetershire and spiciness.

             2/ Memphis and KC style sauces are obviously sweeter, so adjust brown sugar upward.

     It's at least a start. That list of stuff can make a myriad of sauces.

Black cherry soda works well in BBQ sauce.

Keith, use this recipe and kick it up with a shot of bourbon and a 1/2 cup honey. It's a lip smacker!!!
