Bourbon BBQ Sauce

This is the perfect complement to pork and chicken. The smoky and maple flavors pair well with bourbon undertones. I highly recommend Bourbon Baked Beans as a side-dish.


1 cup ketchup

½ cup of your favorite bourbon (I used Evan Williams Black Label)

3 tablespoons brown sugar

3 tablespoons molasses

3 tablespoons pure maple syrup

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon soy sauce

1 tablespoon stone-ground Dijon mustard

1 ½ teaspoons liquid smoke

1 teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon dried crushed red pepper

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

Combine all ingredients. Bring to boil in a saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat to a low simmer until the sauce is thickened and reduced to 1½ cups, stirring often (about 15-20 minutes). Place in a covered container and refrigerate. Brush on your favorite chicken and pork or use as a dipping sauce.
