Homemade Sweet and Spicy Barbecue Sauce

I have made this for years, with a little tweak here and there and finally think I have it perfected. It has just enough bite from the vinegar, but a subtle sweetness too. I make quadruple batches and store it in old mayo jars in my garage fridge for quick meals. The longer you simmer it, the better it gets!
