    Starting with a store bought and doctoring it up is very common.  Cajuns cant open a can or bottle with out adding to it.  What to add is very much up to ya own taste buds here is a few of the many different choices.  Remember that experimenting IM O is a big fun part of cooking.

    Sweet: brown sugar, syrup, honey, even poodely gourmet stuff like agave  necter

    Mustard: yellow, brown or again with the gourmet fancy grey poupon

    hot sauce: a Cajun necessity added to taste

    Fancy stuff like bacon bits with onion diced and fried in the bacon drippings.

    The list of possibilities goes on and on limited by ya imagination, and experimenting is the fun part.  I been q'ín and smokin' for more years than I can remember and still enjoy trying to tweek the process.

    This is a awesome sauce and it helps support the Forum by purchasing the recipe.  YOu are given the recipes after purchase and you make as much or as little as you want.

    The Rub is awesome also, it is lower sodium than most so you can just pour the stuff on and enjoy the Q and the rub.

    My "go-to" easy sauce is:

    1 part Sweet Baby Ray's Original BBQ sauce

    1/2 part apple juice

    1/4 part cider vinegar

    1/4 part molasses

    Bring to a simmer and taste, adjust vinegar and molasses as desired, then let hit barely simmer till it reduces down and thickens a bit. It is a thin tangy sauce that still gets a lot of depth to the flavor from the molasses. It is awesome on pork and chicken, but I for beef I use a lot less molasses and add in some Worcestershire - I prefer a savory flavor with beef over a sweeter flavor.
