BBQ Sauce With Bourbon - Charlie Oven

BBQ Sauce With Bourbon

Servings   Prep Time      Cook Time

12.                      5 minutes                     None


  • 4 tablespoons sriracha

  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed

  • 2 cups ketchup

  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 cup bourbon Whiskey (we like Jim Bean)

  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

  • 4 tablespoons soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder

  • 2 teaspoons sweet smoked paprika

  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • Pinch of smoked salt


  1. Mix all the wet ingredients together in a bowl and add the dry ingredients and mix together.  

  2. Use as a marinade for pork ribs, pork shoulder, pork butt, a whole chicken or chicken wings.

  3. Marinate the meat for a minimum of 30 minutes or up to 24 hours.

  4. Wipe off the excess sauce before cooking.

  5. Skip the marinating step if the meat will be cooked at a high heat as the sugar will burn the outside before the inside has a chance to cook. Instead, use the bbq sauce as a glaze every 30 minutes in the cooking process.

  6. If smoking is part of the cooking process for the meat, smoke the meat for one to two hours before adding the bbq sauce.  Apply the sauce in thin layers as a glaze or pour the bbq sauce all over the meat and leave to cook.
