Sweet & Spicy BBQ Sauce

This was an experiment. Since I am writing a cookbook, my husband always says, OH. that was delicious what did you put in it? I can't always remember the measurements. This time I wrote them down as I went, and it was a success on the first try. I used Habenero powder, but I am giving you options for your desired spiciness:
Ground Habenero Powder - VERY HOT
Ground Cayenne Powder - HOT
Hungarian Half sharp Paprika - MEDIUM
Ground California Paprika - MILD
Wimps, don't use anything

All this is to taste, measurement is just a starting point.
Taste as you go.

Yield: 1 3/4 Cups
