Homemade Barbecue Sauce

We smoked some flank steak last night in our smoker and had pulled beef sandwiches this evening for dinner. To them we added this bbq sauce. It turned out really yummy!!

1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup chili sauce
3 to 4 tablespoons brown sugar
3 to 4 tablespoons molasses
2 tablespoons prepared yellow mustard
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon liquid hickory smoke flavoring
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder or granulated garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon chili powder
dash cayenne pepper, or to taste

In a saucepan, slowly sauté the chopped onion in butter until soft and just beginning to turn yellow. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer for about 15 minutes. Taste and adjust seasonings. Delicious on chopped pork sandwiches or use with chicken.
