This is my grandmother's recipe for barbecue sauce.  I love it, which is 
why I have the recipe.  I've never eaten anything close from a bottled 
variety.  It's very hot and tangy, although the "hot" can be toned down 
according to taste.

Barbecue Sauce

1 qt vinegar
1 64 oz. bottle ketchup
1 cup sugar
2 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. ground red pepper
2 Tbsp. ground black pepper
1 tsp salt

Place all the ingredients in a saucepan.  Simmer on low heat until the 
sauce is as thick as you want it.  2 Tbsp. liquid smoke can also be added 
during the last 30 minutes or so if desired.
