In a pot over medium-high heat, add chipotle peppers and water. Reduce until about 1 cup of liquid is left. Strain out debris and mix sugar into liquid. Place liquid beneath an upside-down bowl. Using a smoking gun, pull smoke from hickory chips for 3 minutes and allow the smoke to be trapped within the bowl. Allow the liquid to rest in smoke for 10 minutes.
