Sloppy Joes

I don't about all of you but I can't get my kids to eat sloppy joes from a can so I made this up.  We all really enjoy it and it is very fast and easy.

6 hamburger buns
6 slices your favorite cheese (we use cheddar or pepperjack)
1 lb hamburger
1 1/3 c. ketchup
1/2 c. bbq sauce (I personally use Sweet Baby Rays)
1/2 c. water
3/4 t. dry mustard
2 T. lemon juice
3 T. brown sugar
1 T. worcestershire sauce
1 t. chili powder (more if you like it spicier)
1/2 t. pepper
1 t/ salt

* In medium saucepan, cook hamburger until done, breaking into small pieces.  Add the rest of the ingredients and let simmer 5 minutes.  Serve on buns with cheese.
