Spicy Jack Daniels Barbecue Sauce

 Now and then I come across a recipe that I can't help but share.  Today I want to share a recipe from my good friend Chef Tom Cooks.  I know it's just January but it's never too early or late to start thinking about BBQ and grilling.  So here we go with Chef Tom's Spicy Jack Daniel's Barbecue Sauce.

Jack Daniels
1/4 cup onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 cups Jack Daniels
15 peppercorns
1 tablespoon mustard powder
2 teaspoons Cholula Hot Sauce (or your favorite hot sauce)
6 oz. Coca Cola
1 bottle Sweet Baby Rays barbecue sauce
olive oil

In a saucepan, saute the onions and garlic in a little olive oil.  Once they begin to sweat, add the cola and bring to a boil.  Once it begins to boil, add the Jack Daniels.  Bring back to a boil and let the alcohol burn off, about 3-5 minutes.
Add the peppercorns, hot sauce and dry mustard.  Reduce the mixture by 2/3.  Turn the heat to low and add the bottle of barbecue sauce and heat for about 5-7 minutes.  Remove from heat and pour through a fine strainer to remove the onions, garlic and peppercorns.
Let cool, cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
