After tasting this Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce, you may never buy the stuff at the store again! This sauce is the perfect balance of smoky, zesty and sweet! Great on pork, chicken or beef!
Is there a condiment that your family just loves ….. something they use on everything? For my family, it’s BBQ Sauce, hands down. Not only do we use it for typical BBQ fare, but we use it as a dip for fries, in salad dressings, on eggs, as a pizza sauce ….. pretty much anything that is not dessert is fair game.
Although we have our favorite store bought BBQ Sauce, nothing compares to the taste of homemade. And y’all, you have no excuse not to make some because it is sooooo easy!! Trust me, you will want to make this because on Friday I am sharing a recipe that uses this Bourbon Whiskey BBQ Sauce. I’ll be sharing a copycat version of Red Robin’s Whiskey River BBQ Burger! Talk about major yum factor!! Since its summer, you really should treat yourself to an amazing burger …. don’t ya think?! This sauce is best if it has time to chill out for about 12-24 hours – so plan ahead!
- 1 small onion, finely chopped
- 4-6 cloves garlic, minced
- 3/4 cup bourbon whiskey
- 2 cups ketchup
- 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1/3 cup cider vinegar

- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp. liquid smoke flavoring
- 1 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. black pepper
- 1/2 tsp. hot pepper sauce, or to taste
- Bring the onion, garlic and whiskey to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Lower heat to a simmer and allow to cook for 10 minutes.

If you prefer a smooth sauce, run the sauce through a sieve or strainer to remove onion and garlic bits.
