  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp Crown Apple Whiskey
  • 1 Tbsp Bourbon
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 cup apple butter
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp fine grind sea salt
  • ½ tsp chipotle powder
  • 2-3 Tbsp apple cider vinegar Optional, see notes in recipe


  • Add the ingredient is the order they are listed and select the Dip function.
  • When the time is up, carefully remove the lid and Enjoy your BBQ sauce!


*** I accidentally omitted the cider vinegar when I filmed the video, but I usually put 2-3 Tbsp in the apple butter bbq sauce. This bbq sauce was delicious in the video, so I have switched that ingredient to optional. 
The only difference between the two is the cider vinegar does make it a little snappier with a touch of tart. 
Use your judgement and you can always add the vinegar after cooking to see which you like better.
