Honey Bourbon Bbq Sauce


Recommended Posts

2 Tablespoons Ground Ancho or ground chili powder, (i use a tablespoon of each)
1 Tablespoon Ground Black Pepper
1 Tablespoon Dry Mustard
1 Teaspoon Ground Coriander
1 Teaspoon Ground Allspice
1/4 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
1/2 Teaspoon Grated Nutmeg
up to 1 tsp cayenne (adjust to taste)
1/4 Cup Neutral Flavoured Oil such as canola or vegetable oil
1 Onion Finely Chopped
6 Cloves Garlic Finely Chopped
1 Shallot Minced
1/2 Cup Lightly Packed Brown Sugar
1 Cup White Vinegar
1/2 Cup Honey
1/4 Cup Worcestershire
sauce or Soy sauce (I use 1/2 and 1/2)
1 Teaspoon Smoked Salt (optional)
1 32 Oz Bottle Ketchup
1 Cup Bourbon

Mix all the spices together and leave for later.Heat oil over medium heat (recipe makes 6 cups so use a large enough pot!) and saute the onion, garlic and shallot until soft.Add the spices and mix thoroughly - about 3 minutes.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes..You can use a hand blender if you prefer a smooth sauce.You can can this sauce like you would any preserves ... mason jars,etc etc.  I freeze it and have noticed no difference.

Practice. Do it over. Get it right.

Mostly, I want people to be as happy eating my food as I am cooking it.
