1 large Lemon
1 clove Garlic
1 slice of Onion
1 cup Dr Pepper
3/4 cup Ketchup
3 tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
2 tbsp. A.1. Steak Sauce
1 tbsp. Hot Sauce (or to taste)
1 tbsp. Cider Vinegar
1 tsp. Liquid Smoke
1/2 tsp. Black Pepper
Kosher Salt (optional)

Cut the lemon in half, then cut a 1/4" slice from one half. Remove any seeds. Save the slice, and juice the two halves of the lemon for 2 tbsp. of lemon juice.

Peel the garlic clove, and gently crush with the side of a cleaver.

Place the lemon slice, 2 tbsp. of lemon juice, garlic clove, onion slice, Dr Pepper, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, A.1., hot sauce, vinegar, liquid smoke, and pepper in a saucepan and slowly bring to a boil over Medium heat.

Reduce the heat to Simmer. Let the sauce gently bubble until it thickens, about 15-20 minutes. Add salt to taste.

Strain sauce into a bowl and let cool to room temperature before serving or refrigerating.

Use with any barbecued meat - especially ribs, pork loin, or chicken.
