Sweet, spicy, and flavored with Jack Daniels whiskey. Great on chicken and pork chops. I came up with this recipe after experimenting in my kitchen. Ketchup may be replaced by your favorite bottled barbeque sauce. You may have to adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. The key is adding just enough whiskey to flavor, not overpower, the dish.

  • Refrigerate for at least one hour before using, to let flavors mingle. Brush on meat during the last few minutes of grilling or baking.

  • Not recommended for marinating unless you omit the lemon juice, as the acid makes the chicken grainy.

this is a really good recipe but I did make some changes.. I didn't use the steak sauce at all and I used the sugar twin brown sugar and one carb ketsup to cut the sugar and carb content. I also used apple cider vinegar instead of lemon juice and a ton more liquid smoke. Good stuff! Read More

Great flavors! We like it a bit sweeter so I added 2 Tbsp. honey. Didn't have any Jack Daniels so used Hieneken beer instead. Thank you Natalie for sharing this recipe. Read More

My wife said that this wasn't sweet enough but I loved it. Next time I'll add more brown sugar if she's a good girl. Read More

I made this recipe recently; just did not add the liquid smoke as I did not have any. The recipe was good and a little zingy! Excellent on Kielbasa! Would definitely make this one again! Read More
