Yield: Makes about 3 cups


  • 1 1/2 cups ketchup
  • 1/2 cup Bourbon
  • 1/3 cup onion, pureed
  • 1/3 cup, plus two tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper


In medium saucepan, heat vegetable oil until hot. Add pureed onion and cook for 1 minute, stirring often. Add garlic and cook for an additional minute. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a bubble and reduce heat to medium low. Allow sauce to simmer for 8-10 minutes. Once sauce is done, remove from heat and allow to cool before applying to chicken. If using later, allow mixture to cool completely, store in a sealed plastic container in the refrigerator. If using as a side sauce, reheat before serving.
