Jim Beam Kentucky bourbon flavors this sauce and gives it some lively spirit. This barbecue sauce is spiked with a generous amount of Kentucky bourbon. Along with the ketchup and bourbon, soy sauce, vinegar, some dry mustard, and cayenne pepper give this sauce complex flavor. For a spicier sauce, add extra cayenne pepper or a bit of Sriracha or hot sauce.
One thing you should be aware of: while cooking over a long period of time will reduce the alcohol content in the sauce, it won't completely eliminate it. Simmering the sauce for 20 minutes should reduce the alcohol by approximately 60%. If you are serving people who can't tolerate alcohol, consider a molasses barbecue sauce.
This is an excellent sauce to use on brisket, baby back ribs, or a slow cooker pot roast, or brush the sauce on grilled burgers or chops.
