George Dickel Barbecue

Did you guys see Kimmel last week? I can’t wait to try this when it warms back up here in upstate NY.

Last week, famed barbecue chef Adam Perry Lang appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to show viewers that whisky and barbecue go hand in hand.

Chef Perry Lang makes his barbecue handmade and with great intention, just like those down in Tullahoma, Tenn. who hand craft George Dickel Tennessee Whisky. A natural pair, George Dickel has the perfect depth and richness to incorporate into barbecue dishes and, since sauce can add so much flavor to barbecue, Chef Perry Lang shared how he created a glaze using George Dickel No. 12. See below for the recipe if you’d like to try the glaze on your own.

Additionally, Chef Perry Lang visited the George Dickel distillery to pick out a special holiday gift for Jimmy Kimmel Live! The gift, a barrel of George Dickel 9-Year-Old whisky, provided a one-of-a-kind whisky to Jimmy and members of the audience. Each barrel varies in taste and provides a unique experience, making this whisky exclusive to the Jimmy Kimmel Live! Show.
