Mustard Barbecue Sauce

Bottled barbeque sauce is great in a pinch, but even better is making your own at home.  This is a delicate and tangy sauce that is tasty on beef, and chicken.   The flavor is more complex in this recipe with the addition of brandy, dijon mustard and white balsamic vinegar.  Try this sauce for your next cook out.
