Whiskey Reduction?

So I know you can make sauce with Jack Daniels but are there other whiskeys that are known to make good barbecue sauces?

I drink the cheap stuff so I'm sure that wouldn't be the best plan.

I use Glenfiddich or even brandy (KWV) sometimes :) They work just fine for me!

You can always buy a small bottle to use for marinades. If you want good but cheap I would go for Bells.

Makers Mark has a sauce, and I think I have seen Southern Comfort sauces. I do not see why any bourbon would be too different from any other. I would stay away from blended whiskies.

Oh and I made a marinade for spareribs a few times using Spiced Gold and I use it for Christmas cake. Tasted really nice.

Agree - I think the bourbon's are the best to use - Jim Beam has worked well for me in the past

I have used Makers Mark to good effect but you can get by with even Club 400 ..depends on the level of tastebuds on your guest's . After is is cooked down it is hard to really tell what kind of bourbon you used.. hell tell em you used Ladybank Single Malt scotch ..
