Used on three separate occasions - rave reviews from all ages each time

This is delicious! I used broth instead of bourbon, and it was still great! Definitely a keeper! I will make this for company soon.

This was well received when I served it for Sunday dinner. Very tender pork and good flavor. I used whiskey because that's what I had, and I don't think that would make much difference. Also it made the house smell nice from both the sauce and the spice rub. I would make this again.

Oh, so good! I used thin cut pork chops and did not add salt as pork is salty enough. Really good flavors in this. Will definitely make again!

Quick and delicious. I used kentucky style whiskey and turned out great. I also added a little red pepper flakes to the sauce. Definitely will make again. To the other reviewer about using Brandy instead of bourbon, I don't see why not, the alcohol burns off anyway.
