In a medium saucepan, whisk together the ketchup, vinegar, lemon juice, Worcestershire, hot sauce, brown sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, salt, pepper, allspice, and cloves.
Bring the mixture to a boil over medium-high or high heat, then turn the heat down to medium-low.
Simmer for 15 minutes, uncovered, stirring periodically, or until it has thickened to the desired consistency. For a slightly thicker sauce, you can let it continue reducing for an additional 5 minutes. (Keep in mind that the sauce will thicken more if you use it for basting meat.)
Store sauce in an airtight container in the refrigerator. This recipe will keep in the refrigerator for 7 days, or in the freezer for 3 months.
Light brown sugar will work in a pinch, but you’ll get a better depth of flavor from dark brown sugar.I don’t recommend using a different brand of hot sauce or it may alter the taste of the sauce.
