I have made this one a couple times, got it from one of Steven Raichlen's books. If you like to drink the bourbon whisky then this one is for you. I am a scotch man myself but this sauce still tastes pretty good. One suggestion I have is don't put crap whisky in it. If you aint gonna drink it then dont cook with it.

STILL HOUSE BARBECUE SAUCE
- 1 cup Jack Daniel's Tennessee whiskey
- 1 cup ketchup
- 1 cup cider vinegar
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup onion, very finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
- 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke
Combine all the ingredients in a large, heavy, nonreactive saucepan and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce the heat and briskly simmer, uncovered, until richly flavored and slightly thickened, about 20 to 30 minutes, stirring from time to time with a wooden spoon. Use right away or transfer to jars, cover, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several months. Makes about 4 cups.
Brush this sauce on ribs, chicken, or pork during the last 10 minutes of cooking. And serve plenty of it on the side.
