Jack Daniels BBQ Sauce
Lynchburg is home to the Jack Daniel's distillery in Tennessee. One of the most popular whiskeys in North America has been used in countless barbecue sauces by some of the best pit masters in some of the biggest competitions.
In 1989 Lynchburg played host to the first annual Jack Daniel's Invitational Barbecue Competition. Each October for one week 67 of America's best barbecue teams and 23 international teams converge to Tennessee to compete in the different pork and chicken categories. The event is now called The Jack Daniel's World Championship Invitational Barbecue.
This Jack Daniels bbq sauce is a great tasting sauce that goes great with pork, beef and chicken.
The sauce has a kick, for those who don't like the heat, simply cut back on the Tabasco sauce. It can be brushed on the final minutes of cooking or used as a dipping sauce at the table.
Ingredients (makes 3 cups)
Combine all the ingredients in a deep nonreactive saucepan over medium heat, stirring, bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer uncovered, stirring occassionally until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes.
Subtract or add any ingredients you like, this sauce has heat so cut back on the Tabasco for a milder sauce. You can experiment making your own homemade recipe, try tweaking the ingredients by adjusting the sugar, spices, etc. until you can find a flavor that is just right for you.
The sauce can be stored up to 3 months, simply cool to room temperature, transfer to an airtight jar and refrigerate
