WOW! I have been to the pinnacle of Flavor Mountain. Wait! Are those angels I hear, singing in the distance? Whoever dreamed this one up deserves global recognition, it is fantastic. What amazed me was how well all the flavors complemented each other. I used Woodford's Reserve also, and homemade apple wood smoked bacon grease. Again, fantastic!
