    With BBQ season in full swing, I've been using J D as part of the maranating process for various meats.

    (Basically, maranating with x y z. .. then lashing in some booze)

    Is their a cheaper alternative?

    Go to Aldi or Lidl and buy their standard Bourbon whiskey.

    Is JD a bourbon.. I thought it was a whisky ?

    Or just a marketing ploy .??

    I think it's technically a Tennessee whiskey, but it's probably close enough to a bourbon.
    You're using it as a marinade, so I don't think it's going to make much difference.

    JD is not technically a bourbon IIRC, I think it’s a Tennessee whiskey. But to all intents and purposes, it’s a bourbon.

    JD is a Tennessee whiskey, Jim Beam and others are bourbon whiskeys. The difference is minimal, Tennessee is filtered through maple charcoal before ageing.

    It's for cooking, so I'm sure that'll be fine.

    Thanks

    Could you substitute it with coca cola gives you a nice sweet and sticky taste. Either drop the whiskey completely or make it 5/1, 4 parts coke and 1 part whiskey. Results might be very close.

    I'll try a bit of both.

    Monday. I'm doing fish, but I'll try Coke and JD(ish) on Tuesday for the beef.

    It meets the legal requirements to be called bourbon - it's a marketing decision not to

    I'm just looking for something similar to use for cooking.

    I'll try the lidl version.
