Combine all of the ingredients except for the bourbon into an eight quart stainless steel sauce pan. Bring to a very slow simmer and stir frequently. After the sauce has reached a temperature of 165 degrees, remove from heat and add the bourbon. Stir in very well and taste. The only adjustment you may need is a little more salt, but I really doubt that you will.
