Place tomato sauce in large measuring cup and bring volume up to 3 cups with water. Then transfer to large saucepan or pot.
In blender, process Onion, green pepper, worcestershire, and water. Then add that to the thinned tomato paste. While mixture is warming on the stove add in Tabasco, Vinegar, garlic powder, and 3/4 of the hot sauce. Reserve a bit of the hot sauce to touch up the spiciness later. If you're a wimp about hot stuff try reserving 1/2 the hot sauce.
Bring to a boil, then simmer, covered for 30 minutes, stirring often, then add and stir in well,
1/2 cup Splenda
1/2 cup Sugar Twin Brown Sugar
Test the flavor and add hot sauce until it's as "hot" as you like.
Let it simmer just a bit more to meld the flavors then serve (or bottle) the sauce.

There are BBQ purests who feel that porperly done BBQ should be served WITHOUT sauce. For those who feel that sauce is or (or required) and need to cut carb intake, this is a pretty good alternative.
