This is where you get to play a little. You can even eyeball the ingredients and add to your liking. If you want a more tangy sauce, add in more vinegar. Sweeter? Add in more sweetener or molasses. This part is really up to you...
Set a large saucepan over medium heat and add in all the listed ingredients for the BBQ sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce by about half, or until it's to the thickness that you'd like. This may take a little while, but it's worth it.
Taste your sauce and it reduces. The flavors are going to concentrate and you can adjust the flavors to your liking at this point.
(Optional if not low carb/keto) When you have your BBQ sauce flavor just how you like it, mix 1 Tbsp. cornstarch with 1 Tbsp. cold water. Slowly whisk into boiling sauce. Stir as it thickens.
Note: It will thicken a little bit more in the refrigerator.
Once the sauce is to your liking, stir in as much as you’d like into the bowl of shredded pork. You can also stir just a little bit in, set the BBQ sauce aside and let your guests add more to their sammies.
