A fantastic BBQ Sauce. Use Jack Daniels (but any Whiskey will do!) Leftover sauce freezes well.

Finger lickin' good! I didn't have any JD, so I borrowed some from a neighbor. Made a double batch and sent some over as a thank you for the JD. She bought another bottle and asked me to make more! I like my sauce with a kick, so I did add some cayenne. Other than that, this is a keeper.

I tried this recipe on a whim and now I don't buy store bought anymore. I always double the recipe so I have plenty on hand.

This BBQ sauce is wonderful. It is nice and thick. Costs a bit more than store bought but I can make this recipe HFCS free. Thanks
