Grilling oysters is a nice variation that lets you enjoy them in an outdoor setting. Grilled oysters pick up a bit of smoke, so pairing them with a homemade barbecue sauce is an obvious choice. In my barbecue sauce, I only use black pepper for heat because I’m looking for the warm background notes, not the hot upfront heat you would get from chiles or chile flakes.When you are prepping the oysters, make sure to rinse them in a colander under cold water and, using a green scrubby pad, scrub and inspect each oyster for sand, dirt, seaweed, and crustaceans that have attached themselves to the shells. It’s important to remove these elements to ensure a pleasant and enjoyable eating experience. — Adam SappingtonRecipes and Photos from HEARTLANDIA by Adam and Jackie Sappington.

And typically, when I go to do that I end up adding bourbon to whatever recipe I am creating. This time I also added maple syrup and it was a great decision. This barbecue sauce is a definitely a little on the sweet side with just enough of a kick! Click here to see Cooking with Maple Syrup — 8 Recipes.

This is a barbecue turkey take on a hot chicken sandwich — a Quebec staple. Tender pulled turkey meat is sandwiched between two slices of bread, then smothered with gravy and sweet peas… Come to think of it, Quebecers seem to douse everything in gravy: fries, sandwiches… The only thing that’s got no gravy is the train. I had to punch that ticket in the good ol’ U.S. of A.

There are three basic barbecue sauces out there — tomato, mustard, or vinegar. Unfortunately, each of these recipes contain a significant amount of sugar, so I adapted this basic, tomato-based sauce and used orange juice as a natural sweetener to make it low in sugar.
