Fire Up The Grill With These Smoking Hot Recipes!

For us, warmer weather has always been synonymous with grilling and cook-outs. We love nothing more than gathering together on a perfect night, with family, good friends, good food and of course, good cocktails!

As we start to head into Official Grilling Season, ribs with homemade Pappy & Company Barbecue sauce have always been one of our favorites. They are a messy family go-to dinner and our mouths are already watering in anticipation!

Our Pappy & Company Barbecue sauce is one of the many ways we have found to use our Bourbon Barrel Aged Maple Syrup and Barrel-aged Pepper Sauce . They are a flavorful addition to some of our favorite marinades and sauces that are so versatile they work with just about anything you could want to grill! We are excited to share with you a few of our go-to marinades for grilling - for ribs, chicken, pork tenderloin, salmon, and more - that are perfect for summer, but so good you’ll use them all year. So tuck in those napkins, fire up those grills, and have fun cooking!
