Looks and sounds great, right down my alley too - I love maple syrup! The maple-butter-bourbon-ancho-sweetspices sounds like a match made in heaven. Not sure about the OJ (although on second thought, it would provide the sour element to the sauce), but I am willing to try! ;)

1 tsp Kosher salt
1/4 tsp Sweet paprika
1/4 tsp Ground ginger
1/4 tsp Ground cayenne
1/8 tsp Smoked paprika
1/8 tsp Cinnamon
Heat the syrup and butter in medium sauce pan over medium heat.
When the butter is melted add the remaining ingredients.
Bring just to a boil then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer 10 minutes.
Brush on the carnage of your choice just a minute or two before you take it off the grill.
