If you love making your own barbecue sauce but are never sure which one to use; try this Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Barbecue Sauce for Beef, Pork, Chicken and Shrimp; it covers all the bases!!
I can not remember a year when I haven’t made all of my holiday gifts for friends (children are another story…they don’t want my food; they want stuff!). Although I try to make something new each year there are repeats by request. This Limoncello is one of the most requested and I even get bottles back in hope of refills.
Though not a food item I have legions of fans who love this Wood Butter for cutting boards and wooden utensils as much as I do. Can’ t buy a new cutting board? Refresh it! I’ve got a couple of new favorites I’ll be sharing this week…and this sauce has been deemed good enough to be first!
I’m thinking this sauce is going to create the same sensation. A bit of whiskey, some heat too; it’s been great on everything I’ve tried; chicken, beef, pork and shrimp…it’s even good straight from the spoon (of course I did!). It was SO bitter cold last week that I just quickly seared some rib-eye on the grill, sliced it and then finished it inside on the stove; it was perfect, seriously.
I used this Jack Daniels Honey Whiskey because I had some but don’t limit yourself; use your brand and add a bit more honey for a similar result. The folks making Sriracha Hot Sauce better get their act together because for some of us it’s a NECESSARY ingredient but if you don’t already have the red rooster or can’t find it; here’s a list on Wikipedia of other hot sauces you could consider!
Sweet, heat, a bit spicy; there is that booze business too…what can I say but this Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey Barbecue Sauce for Beef, Pork, Chicken and Shrimp is oh SO good! A great gift for a cook or someone who loves to grill or what the heck, make it for yourself!
