  1. In a heavy, medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic and stir. Once they start sizzling, add the yellow mustard, cayenne, and salt and stir to mix well. Next, add the mustard powder and brown sugar and stir to mix. Then add the ketchup, vinegar, and Worcestershire and, again, stir to mix. Finally, add the red pepper flakes and liquid smoke and stir until all of the ingredients are well mixed. Turn the heat to low and allow the sauce to cook at just below a simmer for 10 minutes to blend the flavors.
  2. Remove the sauce from the heat and let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate overnight. The next day, strain the sauce through a fine-mesh sieve. Transfer to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
  3. When ready to serve the sauce, reheat gently on the stove top; do not let it boil or you could ruin it.
