2. Smoke tomatoes for 1.5 hours at 200°F with hickory bisquettes
3. Heat olive oil on low-medium heat in a medium sized saucepan
4. Add garlic and onion and sauté until translucent
5. Add smoked tomatoes to the saucepan and simmer on low heat for 1 hour or until sufficiently reduce, stir on a regular basis to keep sauce from sticking to the base of the pan
6. Add balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper to taste
7. I prefer my tomato sauce with more texture, but if you prefer a smoother sauce puree the sauce in a blender or with a hand blender to desired texture
