  • Make (and Take Home) Your Own BBQ Sauce!

Barbecue and bourbon are as Southern as they come, but you can bottle that delicious spirit -- literally -- with this offer: a lesson in the finer points of barbecue and sauce-making, along with a family-style meal and bourbon tasting.

Head to Barn and Company, where you'll be greeted by your guides and snack on an appetizer of juicy chicken wings and led through a tasting of six different bourbons by Heaven Hill Distilleries. Then, it's time for the main event: a demonstration that will kick your culinary skills up a notch. Led by barbecue guru and restaurant pitmaster Gary Wiviott, this lesson teaches you the ins and outs of "low-and-slow" barbecue -- and how to craft barbecue sauce, too.

After this insightful lesson, you'll choose from a selection of multiple ingredients and concoct your own personalized sauce with just the right levels of tart, tangy, smoky, and sweet. Once you've bottled and custom-labeled it, it'll be yours to take home at the end of the evening. Cap the entire experience off with a family-style meal of ribs, pulled pork, and more, and you'll really spice up that normal night out.
