In a large saucepan, whisk in the water and tomato juice.

Add the better than bouillon (or bouillon cube), paprika, sugar, salt, basil, parsley, poultry seasoning, thyme, ginger, mustard, onion powder, bay leaf, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco. Whisk until all the ingredients are well combined.

Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce the heat and let simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove the bay leaf and stir in the lemon juice.

In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch and water. Add to the saucepan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes or until the sauce slightly thickens. The sauce will continue to thicken as it cools down.

Once the BBQ sauce has thickened and cooled, whisk in the oil.
