What would be good to use instead of beer

I was wondering if you could store this in Mason jars? An can it to store.

Made this last night, and it seems to have worked out. A slight burnt taste to it though, so maybe putting it in for 12 hours was too much?

Going to make chicken in the crock pot with it and finish it under the broiler today, so we’ll see how it turns out.

It’s a dry spice mixture you can get in the seasoning aisle.

I don’t can either, but have you ever made a double batch and froze the extra sauce for later use?

HI _ i’ve made homemade bbq sauce before, but have to do the brown sugar, etc… Have not seen BBQ “Seasoning” — what exactly is that? And if you can’t find it in the grocery, can you make it ? Thx, AJ
