   4      cups          tomato sauce
   1 1/2  cups          cola or beer
   1 1/2  cups          cider vinegar
   1 1/2  cups          chili sauce
     1/4  cup           prepared mustard
     1/2  cup           steak sauce
   2                    lemons -- Juice of
     1/2  cup           worcestershire sauce
   2      tablespoons   vegetable oil
   1      tablespoon    soy sauce
   1      tablespoon    honey
     1/2  teaspoon      Tabasco sauce
   1 1/2  cups          sugar -- (dark brown), packed
   2      tablespoons   pepper -- (black), freshly
                        -- ground
   2      tablespoons   garlic salt
   1      tablespoon    butter or margarine

In a large saucepan, combine the first 11 ingredients. Stir well. Bring to a simmer over medium heat.

In a small bowl or glass jar with a lid, combine the brown sugar, pepper, garlic salt and mustard. Stir or shake to blend.

Add the dry ingredients to the tomato mixture and stir well. Increase the heat to medium high, stir in the butter, and bring to a brisk simmer, stirring frequently. Cook for about 20 minutes (or longer for thicker, more flavorful sauce). The longer the sauce cooks, the less its final volume.

Cover the saucepan and reduce the heat to low. Cook for about 30 minutes until the flavors are well-blended. Cool to tepid. Use immediately or cover and refrigerate up to one week.
