Smokey Barbeque Sauce

I came up with the recipe many years ago and have not purchase “store-bought” barbeque sauce except for short notice events since.  This recipe is really easy to make and tastes better after it has sat for a few days in the frig.  In fact, several years ago, my brother was out visiting and I served it to him, he loved it so much it is the only sauce he uses.  You can adjust the liquid smoke, garlic, and onion to your own preferences.

1/4 t fresh cracked black pepper

1/4 t garlic powder

2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1/4 t onion powder

1 small shallot, finely minced

Mix everything together in a non-reactive sauce pan and whisk until smooth.  Bring to a boil then reduce the heat to simmer.  Allow the sauce to simmer for at least 1 hour or until it has thickened.  Remove from heat, cool and then refrigerate for at least two days for the flavors to meld.
