Recipe Yield: Total time: 1 hour, 10 minutes, plus about 3 hours cooking time for the ribs | Serves 10 to 12
1 large onion, thinly sliced, top to bottom 6 cloves garlic, crushed Juice and grated zest of 1 lemon, divided 2 cups Kentucky bourbon 1 teaspoon black pepper 2 teaspoons chile powder 1 teaspoon dry mustard 1 1/2 teaspoons onion powder 1 tablespoon salt, or more to taste 1/2 cup tomato paste 4 cups ketchup 1/2 cup cider vinegar 1/4 cup pineapple juice 1/4 cup liquid smoke 1/2 cup Worcestershire sauce 2/3 cup dark brown sugar 1/3 cup molasses 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco, or other vinegar-based hot sauce 2 dashes bitters

Step 1 In a heavy-bottom 4-quart pot, combine the onion, garlic, lemon zest and bourbon. Bring the bourbon to a simmer over medium-high heat, then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer and continue to cook until the onion is translucent, about 10 minutes.

Step 2 Stir in the lemon juice, pepper, chile powder, mustard, onion powder, salt, tomato paste, ketchup, vinegar, pineapple juice, liquid smoke, Worcestershire sauce, brown sugar, molasses, Tabasco and bitters and continue to gently simmer for 30 minutes. Stir frequently, making sure to scrape the bottom of the pot to prevent burning.

Step 3Remove from heat and puree the sauce until fairly smooth, using an immersion blender or blending in stages in a stand blender. Place the sauce in a nonreactive container and set aside until it comes to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate until needed. Warm the sauce before using.
