“This is a very close reproduction of TGI Friday's Jack Daniels Sauce. When I find a restaurant food item that I particularly like, I try to reproduce it the best that I can, so I can enjoy it at home. A lot of my recipes that I post are of those items. When I make this sauce I make several jars and hot water can them so I can have some at hand. My grand kids love this sauce on hot wings ( I bake the wings and have several types of sauces for them to choose from). This sauce takes some preparation but is well worth it.”

1 1/2 cups of sauce

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut about 1/2 inch off tops of garlic. Cut the roots so that the garlic will sit flat. Remove the papery skin from the garlic, but leave enough so that the cloves stay together. Put garlic into a small casserole dish, drizzle olive oil over it and cover with lid or foil. Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 1 hour. Remove garlic and let cool until you can handle it.
  2. Combine pineapple juice, teriyaki sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar in a medium saucepan overr medium-high heat. Stir occasionally until mixtures boils, then reduce heat until mixture is just simmering.
  3. Squeeze the sides of the garlic until the pasty roasted garlic is squeezed out. Discard remaining skin. Add this to the simmering mixture and whisk to combine.
  4. Add remaining ingredients to saucepan and stir. ( I like to add just a touch more J Daniels for my taste).
  5. Let mixture simmer for 25-30 minutes or until sauce has been reduced by about 1/3 and is thick and syrupy. Make sure it doesn't boil over.
  6. Serve warm with ribs, chicken or shrimp.
