Whiskey BBQ Sauce
This goes beyond "Dressed Up Ketchup" to add tangy, spicy highlights to ribs or other BBQ's meats.
"This recipe us amazing! I made it for a BBQ cookout with some friends and they couldn't stop talking about it. I left the onions in big chunks and just picked them out when the sauce was ready. Goes great with chicken"- Kimrobillard

Whiskey BBQ Sauce Preparation
Combine onion, garlic and bourbon in a 3 quart saucepan. saut until onion and garlic are translucent, about 10 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, bring to a boil. Simmer uncovered until reduced and thickened, about 15 to 25 minutes.
An additional splash of whiskey just prior to serving adds a pleasant odor when serving.
NOTE: While frequent sampling of the "to taste" ingredients can cause confusion and affect the outcome, the alcohol is cooked off during the saut step so it's not a factor in the final dish.
I leave the onion in good sized (3/8 inch) chunks to it stands out in the final sauce.
