Quick, simple, sweet, not too spicy BBQ sauce recipe??

Title says it all. I want to make BBQ ribs in my slow cooker for tonight. My family is having homemade pizza, but I can't. I just happen to have some ribs in the fridge that I haven't popped in the freezer yet. I was going to pop them in my slow cooker, but I'm almost out of bottled BBQ sauce. I made my own once. I liked it better anyway. It was easy. Of course, I didn't save the recipe.

Anyone have an easy, quick, sweet, not too spicy, tomato based type BBQ sauce?

Thanks!

Oh, it would be good if it doesn't have any spicy peppers or cayenne pepper because I don't have those. About the only "spicy" spice i have is red pepper flakes and black pepper. We don't like spicy food. Can you tell?

Just take your ketchup and add vinegar, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, garlic, salt and pepper to taste.

I am terrible with actual recipes and measurements but start with a tablespoon of vin, mustard and Worcestershire sauce and go from there. Spices to taste. O-about 2 cups ketchup.

You could also add smoke flavoring or other flavors, spices, etc. that you like.

That is sort of what I did. I'm not great with doing things "to taste." But, I found a very simple recipe in one of my cookbooks and I embellished it. My husband doesn't love it, but it is fine and I'm the one eating it. Anyway, it isn't bad. It's sweet like I like it. It needs some sort of smokey flavor, but I have no spices to make that with. LOL!

At any rate, my dinner is in the slow cooker and that is all that matters.

(I can't eat the pizza with the family because I am lactose intolerant. So, I'll eat ribs after they go to bed. )
