Instructions

Place a strip of foil on grill to protect skewers, then preheat grill to medium-high. Brush grill grate with oil.

For the sauce, cook onions in butter in a saucepan over medium heat until soft, 4–5 minutes. Stir in ketchup, orange juice, vinegar, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and Worcestershire; season with salt and pepper. Bring sauce to a boil, reduce to a simmer, and cook 10 minutes; cool slightly, then purée with a handheld blender. Reserve half the sauce for serving.

For the kebabs, thread pork cubes and red onion on double skewers; season with salt and pepper. Grill kebabs, covered, 3–4 minutes on one side. Baste kebabs with remaining sauce, then flip and grill 3–4 minutes more.

Baste kebabs again, flip, and continue cooking and basting until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part registers 145°, about 4 minutes more. Let kebabs rest 5 minutes before serving with reserved sauce.

Add bourbon to the sauce off heat. High-proof alcohol will ignite if exposed to a flame.
