Jazz up your main dishes with this easy, homemade maple bourbon BBQ sauce. Ketchup and other kitchen staples simmer on the stove top for a customizable sauce. It can be made from mild to spicy or somewhere in between!
As written, this BBQ sauce is on the milder side of spiciness. If you're looking for a spicy BBQ sauce, feel free to add as much extra hot sauce as you'd like!
Using 1/2 cup of bourbon will allow a fairly bold bourbon flavor to shine through in the sauce. If you're not a huge bourbon fan, I suggest reducing the the amount of bourbon added to 1/3 or 1/4 cup, to your taste.
This recipe yields approximately 1 1/2 cups of BBQ sauce in total.
