Whiskey Gravy

This gravy is insanely good. I got the original recipe from the BBQ Pit Boys. They crank out some really awesome food. Check out their videos on their website.

We had it over a grilled ribeye....

... and also over a grilled chicken breast.

Both were fantastic! We served them with some grilled red potatoes and grilled French bread that had been brushed with some olive oil and some of Todd's Bayou Dirt. You'll definitely want some bread to sop up this delicious gravy!

I made this in a cast iron skillet on my Weber Performer grill. You can make it on the stovetop just as easily.
