  1. Heat oil in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic. Cook 2 minutes or until onion is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients; return to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.
  2. Using barbecue basting brush, brush barbecue sauce on food during the last 10-15 minutes of grilling to prevent burning.

Yield: 3 cups

Cook's note: Discard any remaining sauce used to baste raw meat.
