Fig & bourbon BBQ sauce

This is a really sweet and rich BBQ sauce. It works best with smoked beef and pork, but if you swap fig jam for cherry and replace the vinegar with fresh lemon juice you get a lighter sauce for chicken/burgers etc.

720g Heinz ketchup
550g fig jam
55g red wine vinegar
55g molasses 
65g brown sugar 
35g Worcestershire sauce 
45g dark soy sauce 
55g hot sauce (I use chipotle ketchup from the Pitt Cue book)
15g liquid smoke 
10g onion powder 
200g Bourbon 

Bubble all the ingredients together in a pan until thick then bottle while hot.
