Big Papa's Fingerlickin' BBQ Sauce

I am a HUGE FAN of anything drenched in BBQ sauce! It happens to be my favorite condiment and my hubby knows that whenever we go out to eat at a burger joint, he HAS to order me LOTS of sauce! So when my Father-in-Law made some ribs and asked me to taste-test his sauce, I JUMPED on the opportunity! IT WAS AMAZING!!! I seriously think he should try out for the Next Food Network Star...I know he could win with those DELICIOUS RIBS!!! He reluctantly shared the BBQ sauce recipe with me and I couldn't feel more priveleged to share it with you! We now have a full bottle of this stuff in our fridge AT ALL TIMES! Seriously. It is great on everything and SUPER EASY to prepare! My hubby came up with the name, and I printed off the label! Enjoy! :)
*Again, please forgive my blurry picture!


2 cups bottled bbq sauce (whatever you already have)
1 tsp Creole Seasoning
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup A-1 Steaksauce
1 1/2 Tbl lemon juice
1 teaspoon liquid smoke (you can also try the Chipotle Liquid Smoke for more of a "kick")

Place all ingredients into a saucepan
Wisk it all together over medium-low heat until all the sugar is dissolved and everything is combined well
