Bourbon Barbecue Sauce

bourbon barbeque sauce

It’s getting close to grilling, smoking and barbecue season!  Please do not buy pre-made barbecue sauce.  This takes 10 minutes to make and will stay in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks.  I make a double batch and keep it around for any grilling.  The secret to this sauce is the bourbon.  It gives it a rich flavor that has a little heat.  This sauce is great on chicken, steak, ribs, pulled pork, burgers, you name it!
