Bourbon BBQ Sauce


4 Cups Ketchup

2/3 Cup Apple Cider Vinegar

9 TBSP. Dark Brown Sugar

4 tsp. Honey

3 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce

1 tsp. Dry Mustard

1 tsp. Garlic Powder

1 tsp. Salt

½  tsp. Black Pepper

1 tsp. Chili Powder

1 Cup Molasses

2 tsp. Dijon Mustard

2 tsp. Paprika

9 oz. Container of Smoked Paprika

For the BBQ sauce…It can be made ahead of time.  In fact, it gets better when it sits a little. Put all the ingredients into a pot on medium heat and bring to a slow simmer.  Mix constantly with a whisk.  Lower the flame and cook for 10 more minutes.Be sure to continually stir. You do not want it to burn. Turn off the heat and set aside. Note..You can use this on any meat of your choice. It is great on pulled chicken as well!
