Bourbon Peach Barbecue Sauce (And Its Uses!)

“This came to my inbox from McCormick and I just had to share it! They recommend using the barbecue sauce on grilled pork tenderloin. I think it would be fabulous on any grilled meat or seafood, so I modified the recipe to make it more flexible. I plan on trying it with either chicken breasts or salmon.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (2 lb) pork tenderloin or 2 (2 lb) other meat or 2 (2 lb) seafood, of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon Old Bay Seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh garlic
  • Bourbon Peach Barbecue Sauce
  • 1 cup peach preserves
  • 14 cup Bourbon
  • 14 cup ketchup
  • 1 12 teaspoons Old Bay Seasoning


  1. Rub pork or other meat with vegetable oil, then season with 1 tablespoon Old Bay and garlic. A milder meat, such as chicken, may need less seasoning, so I would recommend using your discretion.
  2. Heat grill to medium.
  3. Combine preserves, bourbon, ketchup and 1 1/2 teaspoons Old Bay in a small bowl.
  4. Grill meat over medium heat until done. For the pork this would be about 25-30 minutes, or until internal temperature reaches 160°F.
  5. Brush with sauce during the last 2 minutes of cooking.
  6. Serve with remaining sauce.
