My best homemade BBQ sauce recipe is an easy sauce that is perfect for drizzling on smoked or grilled meats.

Add the ingredients to a small saucepan: Tomato paste, water, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire, cola, and seasonings.

Seasonings include: garlic powder, minced onion, dried oregano, red pepper flakes, and brown sugar.

Stir to break down the clumps of tomato paste.

Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low heat so that the sauce is at a low boil.

Let it reduce by half, usually takes about 15-20 minutes.  Stir occasionally.

Add to a jar or sealed container and enjoy for up to two weeks.
