    Default Whiskey Weenies

    I serve these during the holidays & the grandkiddies lap them up!

    1 1/2 cup catsup
    1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    1/2 cup bourbon
    1/2 cup water
    2 pounds cocktail wieners (or smokies)
    1 chopped onion

    Combine catsup, brown sugar, bourbon & water in crockpot. Add wieners & onion, stirring well. Cook on low setting at least 1 hour. Gets better throughout the day.

    I forgot to mention. My daughter suggested adding a little liquid smoke to this recipe, so I tried it last Christmas. Just a few drops (less than 1/4 tsp) worked well & boy were they good. My husband said he didn't care for them with the liquid smoke, so it's a toss-up as to whether I'll add it this year.

    Would anyone know if the alcohol fully cooks out of this recipe?

    The alcohol should be cooked out. It doesn't take long for alcohol to cook out when it is heated. These do sound quite yummy! Thanks for the recipe!
    Have you made time to listen to the birds today........

    A study by a team of researchers at the University of Idaho, Washington State University, and the US Department of Agriculture's Nutrient Data Laboratory calculated the percentage of alcohol remaining in a dish based on various cooking methods. The results are as follows:

    * alcohol added to boiling liquid & removed from heat - 85% alcohol retained
    * alcohol flamed - 75% alcohol retained
    * no heat, stored overnight - 70% alcohol retained
    * baked, 25 minutes, alcohol not stirred into mixture - 45% alcohol retained
    * baked/simmered, alcohol stirred into mixture:
    o 15 minutes 40% alcohol retained
    o 30 minutes 35% alcohol retained
    o 1 hour 25% alcohol retained
    o 1.5 hours 20% alcohol retained
    o 2 hours 10% alcohol retained
    o 2.5 hours 5% alcohol retained.

    Floridagirly, thank you so much for this information......I am taking meds right now and cannot have alcohol. I had always wondered how much alcohol actually burns off during certain cooking methods.

    I like to take the weenies and wrap in bacon and bake in the oven until the bacon is crispy. YUMMY!!
