Heat the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the onions and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir about 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients. Reduce heat to medium. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened, about 5 minutes. Let cool before using.

Notes: Liquid smoke can be found in most grocery stores in the condiment aisle and should not be omitted. As the name suggests, it provides a mild but distinct smoky flavor. I recently discovered dried, powdered smoke which has a longer shelf life. However, it is difficult to find. Extra barbecue sauce can be frozen for up to six months.
