Grilling24x7 Sweet Whiskey BBQ Sauce Recipe

I’ve been making this BBQ sauce recipe for a few years now. It’s a sweet BBQ sauce with a nice whiskey (whisky) kick. If you are a fan of a certain whiskey, the flavor of that whiskey will shine through in this recipe. I think that’s pretty cool.

There is no order to the addition of the ingredients. Just mix them all in a medium sized saucepan. Bring the mixture to a boil while constantly stirring. Be very careful here as it can bubble, pop and burn to the pan. So stir often.

You’ll see the dry onion flakes floating around in the sauce, but don’t worry. You will strain this out during the last step. The reason for using these dry onion flakes is to avoid the need to finely shred an onion. Shredding an onion with a cheese grater, in my opinion, is one of the most painful chores I can think of. So I substituted dry onion flakes followed by straining. The onion flavor is still there with none of the fuss.

After the sauce has come to a boil reduce the heat to a brisk simmer for about 20 min. Keep stirring the sauce often. If your sauce looks a little runny don’t worry it will thicken as it sits. I recommend making this sauce at least a couple of hours before you want to use it. It will taste the best if you make it a day before. After the sauce has cooled strain it into a container, leaving the onion flakes behind.
