4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup Sour Mash Whiskey (such
as Jack Daniels)
2 cups ketchup
1/3 cup wine vinegar
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup sorghum molasses
1/2 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 cup tomato paste
2 Tbsp. liquid smoke flavoring
1/2 tsp. Tabasco sauce (more if like
your sauce spicy)
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.

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.
