Y'all, when I think barbecue, I immediately think Kansas City style barbecue.  To me, it's the best there is.  I love the thick, sweet, smoky, spicy tang that it offers!  Well, I got to work making my own and after several attempts, tweeks and twists, I came up with what I think is the best Kansas City style barbecue sauce there is and I've decided to share it with you!  I can be used on pork, beef, chicken (as seen here) it it will even be good on a flip-flop!  You can thank me later.....

1 Sweet onion
3 Medium carrots
2T Butter
38oz. Ketchup (4.75C)
1/4C Apple cider vinegar
1C Brown sugar
1/4C Molasses
1T Liquid smoke
1T Smoked paprika
1t Worcestershire sauce
1/4t White pepper
1t Onion powder
1t Granulated garlic
1t Chili powder
1t Papa's Pepper premium spice blend

Slice carrots and onion very thin and add with butter to Dutch oven over low-med heat.  Add salt and cook for 20-30 minutes to caramelize the carrots and onions.  Add all other ingredients and bring to just barely a simmer.  Use an immersion blender and blend until the sauce is smooth and thick!  Enjoy!
