Jack BBQ Sauce

Jack BBQ Sauce


"Sweet, spicy, and flavored with Jack Daniels whiskey. Great on chicken and pork chops. I came up with this recipe after experimenting in my kitchen. Ketchup may be replaced by your favorite bottled barbeque sauce. You may have to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. The key is adding just enough whiskey to flavor, not overpower, the dish."

  1. In a saucepan combine ketchup, steak sauce, garlic salt, liquid smoke, onion powder and brown sugar. Add lemon juice, pepper sauce, Worcestershire sauce and whiskey. Warm over medium low heat until simmering.
  2. Refrigerate for at least one hour before using, to let flavors mingle. Brush on meat during the last few minutes of grilling or baking.
  3. Not recommended for marinating unless you omit the lemon juice, as the acid makes the chicken grainy.

Great flavors! We like it a bit sweeter, so I added 2 Tbsp. honey. Didn't have any Jack Daniels, so used Hieneken beer instead. Thank you Natalie for sharing this recipe.

this is a really good recipe, but I did make some changes.. I didn't use the steak sauce at all, and I used the sugar twin brown sugar, and one carb ketsup to cut the sugar, and carb content. I ...

made as instructed; although i think i spilled a little more bourbon in the pot when i was measuring. i like it enough; but maybe i will leave out the hot sauce next time. thanks natalie!
