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.
1/4 cup onions, chopped
4 garlic cloves, chopped
2 cups Jack Daniels
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
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.
