What kind of sauce are you looking for?
I usually use Carolina-style sauces. Super easy and delicious, if you like vinegar.

Here's my NC style vinegar based BBQ sauce for Pulled Pork.

EdWort's Pulled Pork Vinegar Sauce

Directions

Take a 1/2 liter (16.7 oz) bottle of water. Pour the water in a glass, drink the water.

Using a funnel, add the following ingredients to the bottle.

4 tablespoons sea salt
2 tablespoon turbinado sugar (sugar in the raw)
1 teaspoon ground Chipotle Pepper
1 teaspoon ground Cayenne Pepper

Top off with Heinz apple cider vinegar (use the real stuff, not flavored).

Put cap back on and shake till sugar and salt dissolve.

Let stand as long as possible, at least 1/2 a day, but the longer the better.

Poke a hole in the cap with a clean nail and you have a squirt bottle.

Here's my house recipe for the past 30 years. All measures are approximate
2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup good Dijon mustard(Maille)
1/4 cup malt vinegar
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 bottle of good porter(Black Butte), or Guinness or Moose Drool
1/4 cup very finely chopped shallots,
1 medium clove of garlic, very finely minced
hot/very hot red chile powder to taste
1 tablespoon butter or olive oil
sautee onions and garlic in butter or oil, but just for 30 seconds-don't burn them
Add all the other ingredients, stir to dissolve the sugar and mix all ingredients, then simmer at very low heat, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes or until thick.
When the meat is cooked, baste with the sauce, turn the meat and baste the other side. Continue until all the meat has a crispy sauce crust. reserve a little sauce for the table.
I use this for pork. For chicken I use honey instead of brown sugar and add a good dose of ground ginger.

Anything really! I haven't had all barbecue styles, but I'm willing to try them all.

I almost exclusively smoke pork. For pork, my favorite sauce is a basic east Carolina mop sauce. This is the grandaddy of American BBQ sauces. The most basic sauce will just have vinegar, black pepper, and chili flakes. Simple but delicious. The acidity balances the fatty pork. Use fresh black pepper, which will give it almost a lemony flavor.

(I can't take credit for this, but it's a good starting point)
1 1/2 cups of distilled (white) vinegar
1 teaspoon hot sauce (Tabasco or similar)
2 tablespoons sugar (white, light brown, or dark brown, but I usually use dark brown)
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons crushed red pepper (optional)
2 teaspoons finely ground black pepper

When I make it, sometimes I mix half-and-half cider and white vinegar. You use it as a mop sauce while you're cooking, then squirt some on as a finishing sauce when you're eating it.

Here's a similar recipe I'll use when I want a sweeter sauce. It's a west Carolina / Piedmont dip:
1 1/2 cups cider vinegar
1/2 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne or 1 teaspoon Tabasco

Simmer ingredients together until sugar dissolves.

We don't get the carolina-style BBQ too much here in Texas. Our sauces tend to be sweeter. I might have to give these vinegar sauces a whirl to cut back some calories but still get some BBQ flavor.

Here's one I've used before and it's always gotten good reviews. It's from purplesmoke.com. It's got a fair amount of mustard and vinegar so even people that don't normally like tomato-based sauces seem to like it. Not super spicy, but warm.

1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup white sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
3 cups beef stock
1/2 cup prepared mustard
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/8 cup (plus a bit more) Liquid Smoke
1/2 cup Worcestershire Sauce
1 cup tomato paste
1 tablespoon chile powder
1 teaspoon hot sauce

Mix well and slow simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours or until the desired consistancy. Stir often. .
