1 tablespoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon ground white pepper
1/2 to 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 cup ketchup
Mix all ingredients together and let sit at least 10 minutes or up to several weeks in the refrigerator. Note that the longer the sauce sits, the hotter it gets since the heat from the red pepper flakes is brought out by the vinegar. Start with 1/2 tablespoon red pepper flakes, then add more to taste.
