Roun' here we like to say, 'keep your friends close 'n your whiskey closer! There ain't no substitutin' that warm, rich, oaky flavor - whether its straight from the jug or used in the kitchen, we don't mess around with anything other than whiskey distilled straight outta them Tennessee hills.
Earl's grillin' tip # 22: Clean the grill, know the grill, be the grill. Every grill is gonna be a little different, take the time to get to know yours. Know where the hot spots are, know how long it takes to warm up as well as the proper cook times to make sure your meat comes out juicy every time.
Marinating with Whiskey: Cover both side of the meat with a nice layer of spice blend. Place into a zip lock bag along with a shot (or two) of your favorite whiskey and let marinate for at least an hour before grilling.
