Still House Barbecue Sauce

Recipe from Steven Raichlen's Barbecue! Bible Sauces, Rubs and Marinades, Bastes, Butters & Glazes

The following sweet, sassy barbecue sauce may be the best reason I know of for not drinking Jack Daniel’s.


  • Yield: 4 cups
Print Save Recipe

  • 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 minced
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons Tabasco sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon liquid smoke

Step 1: 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 minutes, stirring from time to time with a wooden spoon.

Step 2: Use right away or transfer to jars, cover, cool to room temperature, and refrigerate. The sauce will keep for several months.
