Unbelievable BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 32mins
Recipe by Gulf Coast Girl

If you want some great BBQ for ribs and pork try this. My family has me make this every time I come home and they just devour it! I usually make extra servings so I can bottle it up and give it to my family when they come over :) It's a great idea to use as a gift item in a basket with some smoked cheese and crackers.

This is truly an unbelievable BBQ sauce, has a nice sweet and sour flavor with a hint of smoked taste. Once I had all the ingredients stirred in (including the whiskey) I brought it to a boil and then simmered covered for 1 hour. Cooled, refrigerated over night and served with Recipe #296743. Made for *Fall 2008 PAC* Thanks!

  5. NOTES:.
  6. *** If you like your BBQ a little sweet like me, add a little more brown sugar to your mixture. I usually use about 1.5 cups to 2 cups.***.
  7. *** If you use a whiskey you need to let it sit over night for the more robust flavor.***.
