Tip: This recipe is easily doubled to make a quart of barbecue sauce. Simply use the
360 by Americraft 2-quart saucepan. If you prefer a thicker sauce, after the cooking period, keep the pan on the heat, remove the lid and allow the liquid to reduce to desired consistency.
Hint: Chili garlic paste may be found in the Oriental foods aisle of your grocery store.
