Real Awesome Sauce

I'm always on the lookout for sauces, marinades and anything that makes food fun.  Today, let me introduce you to some interesting stuff I found in a hot-sauce shop in Cave Creek:  Ol' Ray's Kentucky Gold Bourbon Barbeque Sauce.

You'll be able to pick it out quickly, as it's as gold as the name implies.  It's a mustard-based blend, dark yellow in color, which helps it stand out from the usual red/orange of most BBQ sauces.  The taste is quite reminicent of mustard(which is what many other BBQ sauces have as a main ingredient), but not overpoweringly so, and the bourbon flavor helps give it a more well-rounded body(insert "cut the mustard" joke here).  It has a spicy kick to it, but you won't be breathing fire; it's just enough to be noticeable.

Good stuff.  I marinated some deep-frozen chicken thighs in it for about four days as they slowly defrosted in the refrigerator, and it made quite the glorious meal.
