In a large stainless-steel pot, combine all the ingredients listed above and bring them to a boil stirring often. (my husband actually mixed everthing up in this container and then poured it into the pot!)

Once the mixture comes to a boil, reduce the heat to low and simmer the liquid for about 15 minutes.

Remove from heat.

After the liquid is finished bubbling, but still quite hot; pour the sauce into clean jars. Be sure to leave around a  1/2 inch of head space in each jar.

Wipe off the rims of the jars with a clean, damp rag and fix on new lids. Twist the ring on snug.

transfer the jars to a safe location for them too cool.

By bottling this barbeque sauce hot, it will seal itself. The sauce will not need any refrigeration until after opening the jar and then only to protect the flavor.
