Default Hak's bbq sauce reverse engineering

My fav store bought sauce. Pricey though. I want to reverse engineer it and get something ballpark. Anyone have a similar recipe or know a good system to reverse engineer?

Start with the ingredient list on the jar. Then takes some guesses, based on standard proportions.

Yes I've done that but it's always a pinch of this or that and then you're close but you end up with something not duplicatable.

do a google search for "hak's bbq sauce recipe" and see if any links have it or get you to a copycat recipe that you can play with to get you where you want to be

The basic ingredients that a packer uses will not be something you can fully duplicate. Often the difference in a clone recipe comes down to things you cannot possibly copy in a home environment. However, if you know the ingredients, and have a basic understanding of how 95% of sauces on the market are made, you can figure it out. Don't do pinches, they are largely useless anyway. Measure everything.
