This flavor loaded bourbon, maple and molasses sauce is a wonderful compliment to your bbq spread. This sauce tastes better the following day and keeps well in the refrigerator for approximately 2 weeks.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup oil
2 medium sweet onions
3/4 cup bourbon
2/3 cup ketchup
1/2 cup cider vinegar
1 – 2 oranges for 1/2 cup juice
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
1/3 cup dark molasses
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon pepper, freshly cracked and ground
1/2 teaspoon salt

Peel and grate the onions. Squeeze the oranges for 1/2 cup of juice. Gather the remaining ingredients, along with appropriate measuring utensils.

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add the oil. When the oil gets pretty hot, add the onions and sauté for 3 – 5 minutes, until they begin to caramelize and brown a bit.

Add the remaining ingredients and whisk to blend well. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 45 – 60 minutes, until the sauce thickens.

Alternately, you can sauté the onions and transfer to a pan that you can place in your smoker. Add the remaining ingredients, whisk to blend well. Place in your smoker and cook for 3 – 6 hours. The authentic smoky flavor is fabulous!

Serve this sauce warm at the table or ‘on the side.’

Yield: approximately 3 cups.
