A Christmas Recipe from George Dickel Whisky


A few months ago, I was lucky enough to attend a VIP whisky and barbecue tasting with renowned barbecue chef Adam Perry Lang. That night, I learned plenty about barbecuing and whisky, as Mr. Lang shared his recipes for George Dickel Whisky barbecue rubs. It was a delicious, interesting evening.

Last week, Adam Perry Lang appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to show viewers what I learned that night – 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, Tennessee, who hand craft George Dickel Tennessee Whisky. It is a natural pairing; 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 the recipe below if you’d like to try the glaze on your own this holiday season!

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. Check out the video below, followed by this exciting recipe!
