Jack Daniel's Grill Glaze

Dish: Sauces & Dressings
Dish Type: Meats
Cooking Method: Stove Top
Difficulty: 2 / 10
Servings: 6
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour

  • 3 Cloves - garlic, minced
  • 1 Tbls - oil
  • 2/3 Cup - water
  • 1 Cup - pinepple juice
  • 1/4 Cup - crushed pinepple
  • 1/4 Cup - teriyaki sauce
  • 1 Tbls - soy sauce
  • 1 1/3 Cup - dark brown sugar
  • 3 Tbls - lemon juice
  • 1/2 Cup - Jack Daniel's Whiskey
  • 14/ - 1/2 Tsp - Crushed red pepper flakes (depending on taste)
  • 3 Tbls - finely chopped onions *is supposed to be first ingredient, sorry

1.            In medium saucepan, add onions, minced garlic and oil. Cook a few minutes over medium heat, stirring occasionally.

2.            Add remaining ingredients.

3.            Stir occasionally until mixture comes to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer.

4.            Simmer for 40-50 minutes or until sauce has reduced by about 1/2 and is thick and syrupy/

While grilling, brush over salmon, steaks, chicken, hamburgers, hot dogs or even veggies. It makes about anything yummier.


I have brushed this sauce on bell pepper strips, portobello mushrooms (extra yummy), anything that goes on the grill is subject to being slathered with this tasty sauce. Chicken breasts are especially good, salmon is wonderful.

You may serve extra Jack Daniel's glaze as a dipping sauce. But reserve some before brushing raw food, you don't want cross contamination. So separate the dipping sauce in a separate bowl before you go to the grill.

You may substitute Jim Beam if necessary with fine results.

If you don't have teriyaki sauce available, just add a little more soy sauce.

Let it simmer a good long time, it needs to be thick and syrupy to stay on the food and not just drip off.

*oops, sorry for leaving off the onions, I added them at bottom of ingredient list, 3 Tblsp. finely chopped onions
