1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, stir together the ketchup, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, hot sauce, garlic, mustard powder and salt. Bring to a simmer, then remove from heat and allow to cool slightly before brushing on your favourite barbecued meats.

Whether it's raining outside or you simply haven't got a barbecue, you can bake your meat in the oven and brush this sauce on the meat during the last few minutes of cooking.
