Memphis Style Barbecue Sauce
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup yellow mustard
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 - 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes, to taste
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon chili powder
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1. Combine all ingredients in a medium non-reactive saucepan.
2. Bring to a simmer and cook over low heat about 25 minutes, stirring occasionally, til smooth and thickened. Watch out for splashing-- it's so thick that splashes are killer. It's okay to cover.
3. Let cool slightly, and serve. This bbq sauce gets better as it sits.
