Mouthwatering Whiskey Marinade

What would a true tailgate be without something delicious to throw over the coals? And while you have to pick a team to root for on the field, when it comes to a battle for the barbecue, any meat lover is sure to be a fan of this brown sugar and bourbon marinade. Whether you’re grilling chicken, pork or steak, you’ll be ready to infuse your meat with flame-worthy flavor of bourbon after whisking up this sauce in mere minutes. Be sure to prepare it in advanced so that the meat sits in the marinade for a few hours before searing it up. Pro Tip: marinate your meat in a plastic baggie the night before the game. This ensures it has soaked up all the flavorful juices, while also making transporting easy and cleanup a breeze.
