Barbecue Sauce

I used to make this sauce frequently, especially when I lived in Yakima in the 70s.  We'd slide a couple of chickens on the spit and barbecue them, until juicy and tender.  All the time basting them with this sauce from Fanny Farmer's Cookbook.

1 tsp salt
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp celery see
1/4 cup (or less) brown sugar
1/4 cup vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire
1 cup tomato Catsup
2 cups water
few drops Tabasco

Simmer half an hour.

To Vary:  Cook 1 grated onion and 1 minced clove of garlic 5 minutes in butter and add to the sauce.
