Smoky BBQ Slaw

A friend of mine gave me her Taste of Home Grilling cookbook to check out and I found some very interesting things -  one of them being BBQ slaw. After watching "The Neely's" on TV, I've realized that BBQ can be put on a lot of different things - I've done pizza, they've done spaghetti, so why not slaw?
It was my dad's birthday and we were fixing him dinner  - pulled pork and sides, when I decided to try my version of a BBQ slaw.
If you like a vinegar based slaw sauce, this is good. It does have a bit of twang, but there's still a hint of smokey BBQ in the background.

Smoky BBQ Slaw
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup white vinegar
1/2 t. salt
1/8 t. pepper
