Default syrup

Been playing around with some different rubs and sauces for awhile now on ribs and butts. Sometimes I wrap sometimes I don't.

Anyway, was thinking today about honey and how much its used with bbq and it got me thinking about syrup. Anyone ever use syrup in their sauces or maybe when wrapping instead of honey?

I put a shot of syrup in some sauce once, it was pretty noticeable. I think the maple taste could be over-powering.

Do you mean maple syrup, or any type of syrup?

I do use maple syrup, and have found that when done right, it is a nice complement. I prefer light amber, as the flavor is more delicate. I have also used various other syrups as experiments, and they work fine, but, honey is easier to find and adds a nice flavor.

I use an apple syrup called "Boiled Cider" made by Woods Cider Mill. Adds sweetness as well as a great apple flavor to the ribs.

Great Stuff....

If you use real Maple syrup, not the store bought corn syrup that's maple flavored, you will really enjoy the flavor.
I use the syrup we make on different things and I'll tell you it's great!

Agave or cane syrup adds a different flavor profile. Never tried real maple syrup.

Agave is a real good choice for flavor no doubt there

I agree about the maple syrup, I have used it to glaze loin backs. However I prefer dark amber for its richer flavor.
I also use maple sugar as a base for my wing rub, love it on chicken wings. OK so I'm thinking a maple glaze on chicken thighs, now I have something to work on.

No syrup...but use unsulferd molasses in my BBQ sauce. I've also used coke in my sauce. But I swap something else out if I experiment so it does not get to sweet.

I use real maple syrup in our sauce. Really never had it overpower anything.
