    This year I am going to try to get that "knock your socks off" Bourbon glaze for bugers nailed down. This is 1 sauce/rub that has eluded me for ALONG time. In the past I have wore out my freinds and family trying to perfect a rub/sauce/glaze , so I think their up for this 1.

    In the past when I got serious about a bourbon burger glaze, I started with some/and/or
    touch of vinegar
    and so on, then dillited with bourbon. Not sure what I'm gonna start with, but I'm sure i'll get fat and drunk in process this summer.

    Any Ideas? as to a good base starter.

    AND, the glaze I'm trying to match/copy is from Rock Bottom (brew pub eatery)

    Here is a copycat recipe for the TGIF jack daniels sauce. I have not tried it but it might be a good starting point.

    1/3 cup diced red onions
    1/2 teaspoon finely-diced garlic
    1/2 cup water
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/3 cup teriyaki sauce (I would use a thicker teriyaki as opposed to the runny stuff)
    1/4 cup soy sauce
    1/3 cup white grape juice
    1/2 cup Jack Daniel's black label bourbon
    1/2 teaspoon Tobasco sauce

    Cooking Directions:
    Place ingredients in sauce pan in order listed. Mix and stir after each ingredient.
    Place on medium heat and stir until mixture reaches boiling stage.
    Turn temperature down to low until mixture is on a slow simmer.
    Cook sauce for 35 to 45 minutes and remove from heat.
    Mixture will have reduced in volume about a 1/4 to 1/3.
    Sauce is great with chicken fingers or crispy deep-fried chicken breast strips.

    Dont add the bourbon until last. Let the temps drop a bit then add "REBEL YELL" [​IMG]
