Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and rinse with cold water until cool. Drain water and transfer to a large bowl.
Add bell pepper, celery, and scallions to the pasta.
Whisk together vinegar, hot sauce, chili powder, garlic powder, cayenne, mayonnaise, and BBQ sauce. Add to pasta and stir. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
Can serve pasta salad immediately or refrigerate for up to 2 days.
My favorite BBQ sauces are G. Hughes, Sweet Baby Rays, Stubbs, and Williamson Brothers.
