|Whole and Crushed Tomatoes|
|Chopped Vidalia Onion|
My barbecue sauce started out as 6 28 ounce cans of crushed and whole tomatoes, 3 each. I'd skip the whole next time around in favor of all crushed. Those went into a large stock pot with roughly 2 cups of white sugar, a cup of molasses, a cup of apple cider vinegar, a half cup of Worcestershire sauce and several good dashes of liquid smoke. I didn't dump all that in at once, I went slowly, tasting as I went to make sure I didn't over do anything.

In the end we made 192 ounces of sauce for about $10.00. Even if you count the two hours of work, with one hour just sitting there, this is still cheaper than an equal amount of store bought gourmet sauce.
