Hard Rock Cafe's Watermelon BBQ sauce

This is the best BBQ sauce recipe I have ever used! It's more like a glaze-y type sauce and is absolutely amazing.It sort of carmelizes (which is YUMMY, but sticky on the grill as my husband found out...) I made tofu skewers with this recipe the other day for a BBQ we had and they recieved RAVE reviews, even from the carnivores. This is a copycat recipe of Hard Rock Cafe's Watermelon Babyback Ribs from the Top Secret Restaurant Recipe book by Todd Wilbur. Enjoy! Lemme know if you try this and love it as much as me!

Watermelon rind from 1/2 sm watermelon
1c dark corn syrup
1/2c water
1/4c ketchup
1/4c distilled vinegar
3/4tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp liquid smoke
1/4tsp black pepper

1. For the pureed watermelon rind, cut off the green skin and about 1/2inch of the hard white part, keeping the part that is lighter red to white. This is the tender part of the rind. Stay away from the hard white bit just under the skin.

2.Put the rind in a food processor and puree for only about 10 seconds. Strain the liquid from the pulp and use 1 cup of the pulp, measured after straining.

3.Combine the pulp with the remaining ingredients in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to the boil then reduced heat and simmer for about an hour of until desired thickness. (I took the lid off for a bout 20 minutes at the end to thicken it up)
