Pork and Corn Kabobs With Maple Bourbon BBQ Sauce

“These are wonderful kebobs. If you have any bourbon on hand, these are well worth making. Whiskey may be replaced instead of the bourbon. I sometimes add on cherry tomatoes onto the skewers too. Note: the sauce may be prepared a day ahead and refrigerated until ready to use. Prep time includes marinating time.”
