    Try this: 1/4 Grade B maple syrup. 1/4 lemon juice. 1/4 lime juice. 1/4 hot sauce of your choice.

    I make a mixture of approximately 50% sweet baby rays and 50% original open pit, a touch of vinegar to thin it out and a pinch of red pepper flake for heat. Simmer on the stove for a while to get those pepper flakes working, then let it cool. This sauce is easy to adjust sweet/heat to your personal taste

    I love this new sauce I bought after watching the pitch of the teenage founder on Shark Tank (she got a deal from Kendra Scott). Sienna Sauce. You only get it from her website, Siennasauceco.com. The Tangy is sweet with a good kick to it. I haven't tried the one labeled "Spicy", but given the kick on the Tangy, I'll bet it up there.

    Anyway, no high fructose corn syrup, gluten free (which I could care less about), and such. The main thing: It is one of the best zesty style sauces I've ever had on ribs and chicken.

  • Need Help: Best Sweet with Heat Sauce for Pork Spare Ribs

    So I’m gonna smoke three racks of spare ribs soon. One rack will just be S&P while two racks will have rubs and sauce.

    One rack will be sweet- Cimarron Doc’s rub with Blues Hog sauce.

    One rack will be sweet with some heat. I’m thinking HolyVooDoo as the rub because I’ve heard good things about it but I need help with a sauce that has the sweet but also with a kick to it.

    If anyone has any recommendations... please share.

    Much appreciated.

Is This Superb Charcoal Grill A Kamado Killer?

The PK-360, with 360 square inches of cooking space, this rust free, cast aluminum charcoal grill is durable and easy to use. Four-way venting means it’s easy to set up for two zone cooking with more control than single vent Kamado grills. It is beautifully designed, completely portable, and much easier to set up for 2-zone cooking than any round kamado.

The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

The Good-One Open Range is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.

Masterbuilt MPS 340/G ThermoTemp XL Propane Smoker

This is the first propane smoker with a thermostat, making this baby foolproof. Set ThermoTemp’s dial from 175° to 350°F and the thermostat inside will adjust the burner just like an indoor kitchen oven. All you need to do is add wood to the tray above the burner to start smokin’.
