While we are thrilled summer is drawing to a close and fall is on the horizon, there is still plenty of time for backyard barbeques while the weather is still warm (or hot in most places across the U.S.!). While you can cook up all the usual boring barbeque classics like hot dogs, burgers, and brats, adding a little pure maple syrup into the mix can take your grill-out from drab to fab. Here are some of our favorite ways to transform a late summer backyard barbeque by adding a little sweetness using New Hampshire maple syrup. Tired of the usual brands you find in the grocery store? Hop over to Ben’s Sugar Shack and give our 100 percent pure maple syrup a try! We’re sure once you taste the deliciousness of Ben’s, no other maple syrups will ever compare.
Ways To Enhance Your BBQ With Pure Maple Syrup
Sweet and Spicy Barbeque Sauce
What better way to dress up grilled chicken breasts, thighs, and legs than by slathering it in rich barbeque sauce? With Ben’s maple syrup barbeque sauce! We proudly offer two unique barbeque sauces made with pure maple syrup for a perfect balance of sweet and spicy. From Ledge Top barbeque sauce and dip to Butternut Mountain Farm maple barbeque sauce, you can taste a little bit of New England’s finest maple syrup in every delicious bite. Both maple-based sauces go perfectly on chicken pork, beef, and even tofu for all you veggie-heads out there. Slather it, drizzle it, marinate it, or dip it – regardless of how you eat it, we’re sure you’ll love it!
Sweet, Sizzlin’ Seasoning
Want to add a new flavor to your beef, turkey, or bean burgers? Ben’s Maple Pepper takes a new twist on Italian seasoning often used to add flavor to grilled meats and grilled fish. Ben’s Maple Pepper combines the sweetness of all-natural maple sugar – a healthy alternative to refined white sugar – with the spiciness of high-quality Italian pepper for a flavor explosion like no other. While it goes great on meat, add a dash to grilled veggies, grilled garlic potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, or simply sprinkle some on fresh-cut tomatoes.
No backyard barbeque is complete without the sides. Rather than whipping up the usual potato and macaroni salad, try these tasty maple syrup-based sides, instead! For a sweeter side, maple syrup-glazed grilled apples will always be a hit. Serve them with an extra drizzle of maple syrup and a crushed pecan and walnut garnish. Maple syrup baked beans pair perfectly with chicken, beef, pork, fish, and grilled veggies, just don’t forget to add in the maple bacon!
