This is too easy, but I find the end product excellent.........

Here is a quick, and good, change of pace.

1 cup commercial bbq sauce (I used a KC style)
cup apple juice
1 tsp your favorite BBQ rub
1/4 cup bourbon (+ or -)

Combine the first three ingredients in a non-reactive pan on the stove. Heat gently, stirring until mixed well. Take off stove and stir in bourbon. MMmmmm.....good ;)

This is on the sweet side, so you could add some cayenne or hot sauce if you so desired.

This is equally good on Brisket, Pulled Pork or Ribs.

I got a lot closer to what I am looking for over the weekend and when I get time will post the recipe.

I think I am going to take Ask-A-Butcher's advice and switch out some lemon juice for apple juice and more bourbon. Currently I have adjusted the recipe based on previous advice in this post and think the next tweak may be the final one. Nice call on the apple juice, thanks.

Now why didn't I think of that?!?!?!

The sauce recipe that I make at work calls for peach nectar. It's great. Nice and tangy, with "something" that you just can't quite put your finger on. I'd bet some bourbon added to the sauce, at the end, would be excellent.

How about it. Typically I will use Tamarind paste in BBQ sauce. I like the bitter counterbalance to the sweet as I like a fairly sweet BBQ sauce.

Simillar to AAB, I just add some to a prepared sauce and let it simmer a bit. I also found that cooking the sauce on the meat rather than dipping makes a little nicer flavor.

The bourbon syrup is a great idea.

I'll have to remember the tamarind idea. I like the flavor of tamarind, but hardly ever use it. It's probably perfect for using in BBQ.
