Jack Daniel's Whiskey BBQ Glaze

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Carmen B.

I found this copy cat recipe (from T.G.I. Friday's) while surfing the net along with a few others and found this to be the best. BEWARE!!!! This has an extremely bad odor while cooking, but after it has completely cooled it has an awesome taste. Can be used as a dip for shrimp also.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish I could give this recipe 10 stars. It is absolutely magnificent on pork ribs. DH started a slab of pork ribs in the oven on 250 degrees for about 3 hours then transferred it to the gas grill and starting basting with the glaze for about 1 1/2 hours. It is truly finger lickin' good. Thanks for a wonderful recipe Carmen!!! Edited to add: DH cooked the glaze according to directions and didn't change a thing except we didn't have Jack Daniel's Whiskey so we used what we had on hand - Jim Beam Whiskey. He used a Tbsp of Tabasco and didn't find the sauce had a bad odor. We didn't find the sauce to be too sweet either -it was perfect.
