Add ¼ of cooking oil to the pot.\n4. Add the celery and onion to the pot to sauté\n5. You want the onions and celery to caramelize\n6. Add the Garlic to the pot just before the onions are caramelized. You do not want to burn the garlic\n7. Remove the onions, celery and garlic from the pot leaving the cooking oil. Set them to the side\n8. Move the pot to the side of the grill with no coals\n9. Add 4 Tbsp. of sweet butter to the pot with the oil and melt\n10. After the butter is melted, slowly add 4 Tbsp. of flour to the pot. Stirring as you add it.\n11. Cook the flour until it is slightly brown\n12. When Flour is browned, add ½ cup of whiskey\n13.
