Made this yesterday but modified it. I added 2 whole pitted fresh peaches, simmered then beat them up with my immersion blender. Came out really nice as i wanted a little fresh sweetness in it.
Actually going to marinate a few beef strips in it and stick them in the dehydrator for jerky. Similar to a jerky marinade i use so i dont see why this wont work.
And of course i had to buy a whole chicken that im gonna glaze up with this on the kettle tonight.
