Great on pork and chicken, Peach Bacon Bourbon BBQ Sauce takes the sweet taste of summer and punches it in the face.
Prep: 10 mins
Cook: 45 mins
3 slices bacon
1/2 cup sweet onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/3 cup bourbon
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
4 peaches, peeled, pitted and chopped
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon course ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne
1Cook the bacon in a large pot over medium heat until browned. Remove the bacon, and eat it. Add the onion and garlic to the pot. Sauté in the bacon drippings over medium heat until tender. Add the bourbon and deglaze the pan (scrape up the cooked on bits).
2Add the remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer and cook down for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
If you just want to make peach barbecue sauce, use butter or oil instead of bacon and water instead of bourbon.
