Maple Bourbon BBQ Sauce

Well, Maple Bourbon enhanced BBQ sauce lol.  I took some plain BBQ sauce and turned it into a bit fancier version.  It is great on steaks…. which we used it on the first night, pork chops… second night lol and it will be great on chicken, turkey, sausages… you name it!  A great way to up the BBQ sauce game!

Did I mention how easy this is as well?  Throw all the ingredients in a large mason jar, shake and it’s done!



These are my ingredients, well, except for the Dijon mustard that I forgot to put in the picture… I know… me forgetting an ingredient in the pictures is nothing new 😦


I poured all of the ingredients into a large mason jar and put the lid back on….


Shook it all up really well….


And had myself a jar of Maple Bourbon BBQ Sauce to use on the grill!


You can also use it as a marinade first.  That’s what I did with both the steaks and pork chops, brushing on extra sauce while it was grilling.


These are the steaks, all ready to eat…. one with fried mushrooms, the other without because Dillon hates mushrooms lol!
