Bourbon Peach BBQ Sauce Recipe

Peach bourbon barbecue sauce is great on pork!

The best BBQ sauces, in my opinion, are made from southern recipes. Since barbecued pork is such a popular southern food, this isn’t surprising. The following BBQ sauce recipe is sweet and tangy, with a punch of good southern bourbon. For a spicier sauce, increase the amount of cayenne. You might also want to add some hot sauce to the recipe for extra heat.

We love this barbecue sauce on pork – loins, shoulders, pork chops, and ribs. It’s also great on chicken, fish, and shrimp.
