People have been asking about this since I sent the recipe to McCurly today and mentioned it on twitter. Here’s my home made recipe for my BBQ sauce. It’s a bit thicker than some of the others but it’s got a sweet heat and spice to it, and is great for making BBQ items on the grill, in a crock pot or for dipping.

  • 1 cup Jack Daniel’s Honey Whiskey
  • 1 cup tomato paste
  • ½ cup dark brown sugar
  • ¼ cup vinegar (non malted, not apple just the regular stuff)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ cup Franks Redhot Sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste


Combine and simmer over medium heat for about 20 minutes stirring often until a BBQ sauce like consistency, then set to cool. makes about 3 cups.
