This recipe was given to me by my Sister who called tonight to tell me about the party she had on the 4th of July. She told me her friend from Seattle gave her a Barbecue Sauce recipe for hamburgers about 1 month ago so she decided to use it. It was a hit with her guests and that was good enough for me to ask her if I could post on JAP. She gave me her permission.

SO.. Check it out!!

How to Make Whiskey Barbecue Sauce Recipe



    Combine all ingredients in a sauce pan. Simmer for 30 minutes, uncovered, stirring occasionally.
  2. HAMBURGERS: Preparation time: 15 minutes -
    Serves 4.

    Begin grilling the hamburger patties. While the burgers are cooking, prepare the buns by buttering both sides lightly and warming or broiling them.
  4. When the buns are warmed, place them side by side. Spread mayonnaise on the top half of each bun and top with lettuce and tomato. When you turn the hamburger patties, place 1 slice of Swiss and 1 slice of cheddar on each patty and top each with two slices of cooked bacon.
  5. Spread the Whiskey BBQ sauce on the bottom half of each bun and then top with a burger patty.

    Place burgers on a platter and serve with a salad if you like.
