Cheap and easy (bbq sauce that is)

I like using kraft original as a base, and doctoring it up to taste. Its always on sale for a $1/bottle too..cant beat it.

1/2 cup ketchup
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup(or less) water
1 tbsp chili powder

I like to take a hot BBQ sauce (Famous Daves Devils Spit is good) then adding honey in a 1:1 ratio.

Something about mixing hot with sweet makes for a taste bud party.

It all depends on the type of base you like. Most common are tomato or vinegar but there are other bases. I like tomato and vinegar based ones the most. has some good choices.
