Bring 1½ cups water, oil and half the BBQ sauce to a boil in a small pot. Add in dry ingredients, stir well. Turn off stove, cover tightly and let sit for 15 minutes. In cool temperatures, or at higher-altitude, place covered pot in a pot cozy to retain heat.
Stir well, top with remaining BBQ sauce and enjoy.
