Because the sugar in this sweet-savory blend can burn, it's best on meats that cook for extended times over low heat, such as brisket, ribs, or leg of lamb. Try it on spit-roasted whole turkey or chicken--or any meat cooked over indirect heat, such as brined pork chops. In cooler months, use it on meats braised in the slow cooker.
