What is a 'Barbeque Sauce'?

A ‘barbeque sauce’ is a flavouring sauce used for basting during cooking, as a marinade prior to cooking, or as an accompaniment to meat cooked on a barbeque, including pork, beef and chicken.  It is a ubiquitous condiment and is used on many other foods as well.

The ingredients can vary widely, even within individual countries, but most include some variation on vinegar and/or tomato paste as a base, as well as liquid smoke, spices such as mustard and black pepper, and sweeteners such as sugar or molasses.  The most common barbeque sauce in the United States is a Kansas City-style which uses tomato purée, corn syrup, molasses and vinegar and has a long shelf life.
