Here is a bourbon marinade thats good for just about anything. It works great on pork baby back ribs.
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- 1/4 cup soy Sauce
- 1/4 cup Dijon Mustard
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 small onion, chopped fine
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- A splash of Worcestershire Sauce
Again, measurements are only suggested as a guide to go by. Even this one is a modified version of one I found. I always up the dosage of alcohol. You always have to take into account how much meat you are going to use, and the thickness of the slab.
I suggest Maker's Mark for the bourbon. Jack Daniels and Jim Beam will do good, however do not use Southern Comfort, its a unique whiskey pretty much made for drinking only. Do not use garbage such as Canadian Mist.
I always recommend 6+ hours of soak time, If you do this, you will never go back to the 1-4 hour method. It really does make a difference. Serious marination takes time and patience. Enjoy.
