This is a sweet but sour BBQ sauce that goes great on pork, chicken or beef

4 cups ketchup
2 cup water
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons salt
2 tablespoons fresh ground black pepper
2 tablespoons onion powder
2 tablespoons garlic powder
2 tablespoons ground mustard
juice and zest of 2 limes (3 if small)
2 tablespoons worcestershire sauce

In a large saucepan, combine all ingredients.
Bring mixture to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.
Cooked uncovered, stirring frequently, for 2 hours.

I’d put them on the grill myself. The bbq sauce sounds good too.
