Transcript:How to Make Jim Beam Barbecue Sauce

Hello, I’m Daniel Kazel for About.com. Today we are making Jim Beam BBQ sauce. This Barbecue sauce recipe with Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon comes from About.com’s Southern Food site and taste delicious. So lets get started.

The ingredients for Jim Beam Barbecue Sauce Are:

  • 2 cups tomato ketchup
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons dry mustard
  • 1 cup Jim Beam Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey (Bourbon, scotch and whiskey may be used interchangeably)
  • 4 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • dash liquid smoke, to taste, optional

Combine and Heat Barbecue Sauce Ingredients

In preparation for you sauce, combine all ingredients in 2-quart saucepan. Bring all your ingredients to a boil over high heat and stir occasionally to prevent burning. Reduce your heat to low; and let sauce simmer uncovered, for 20 minutes, or until it thickens. For a sauce with thinner consistency, pull saucepan off the heat. For a really thick sauce, lower the heat and stir constantly for a couple minutes. Let the sauce cool and refrigerate it overnight. The sauce tastes best one to two days after it is made. The rule of thumb is that it takes 3/4 cup of sauce to cover ribs from end to end. This recipe makes about 3 cups of sauce.
