This is a favorite in our family from our King of Barbeque. An all-around sauce that is excellent on chicken, beef or pork!
Combine onion, garlic and whiskey in a 3 qt. Saucepan.
Sauté' until onion and garlic are translucent, approximately 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and light mixture: Flame for 20 sec.
Add all remaining ingredients. Simmer 20 minutes, stirring constantly.
Run sauce through a strainer to remove onion and garlic bits if you prefer a smoother sauce.
The sauce can be made ahead and gets better with age.
