Watermelon Barbecue Sauce
1 each 6 lb seedless watermelon
8 oz tomato paste
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sherry
2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon liquid smoke

Cut the melon into chunks and place in a saucepan. Cook it uncovered over medium heat until the melon is the consistency of applesauce (approximately 2-3 hours). Stir it occasionally. Add remaining ingredients. Simmer uncovered over low heat for 2 hours. Allow to cool to room temperature before using.

Options: White vinegar may be substituted for the lemon juice. Try mixing yellow tomatoes and watermelon for color variation
