  • Summary

    Making your own homemade barbecue sauce is much simpler than you might think. This version is laced with smoky bacon and bourbon. Use a bourbon you like, but there’s no need to splurge when it comes to price — we go for mid-range, ourselves.

    Ingredients

    • 4 ounces bacon, chopped (4 to 5 slices)
    • 1 medium onion, sliced into half moons
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
    • 3/4 cup (175 ml) bourbon, use a mid-range bourbon like Woodford Reserve or Bulleit
    • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons dark molasses
    • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 (28-ounce) can whole tomatoes in juice
    • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    • 4 to 5 dashes hot sauce, optional
