If you missed last week’s Jimmy Kimmel episode then you didn’t see the fantastic barbecue chef Adam Perry Lang on the show. Lang was on the show to show Jimmy and his audience 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, Tenn. who hand craft George Dickel Tennessee Whisky. A natural pair, 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.

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.

Below is the recipe for the meal Adam made on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

George Dickel Whisky Holiday Roast Baste


1 cup George Dickel No. 12

1 Tbsp butter

1/2 cup finely diced shallots

2 tsp freshly ground black pepper

1/2 cup cubed cold butter


In a small pan over low heat, sweat shallots in butter until golden then add black pepper. Remove from flame and pour in whisky, light by tilting the pan, or with lighter. Be careful of the flame. Cook until the alcohol burns off. Remove from fire and swirl in cold cubed butter. Add salt to taste.
