Stone Smoked Porter Roasted Apple Sauce With Chipotle Peppers
What's It Taste Like?
As advertised, this hybrid is parts barbecue sauce and chutney. Its consistency may turn a few heads at first, but Stone’s selection of simple ingredients (peppers, apples, sugar, salt, spices, and beer) make this the most novel — and in some ways, noteworthy — on this list. The end result is a kind of smoky, multipurpose, Western-BBQ answer to Chinese duck sauce.
Best for Beer, Fish or Fowl?
Ahi or even salmon come to mind (as a marinade or glaze), but don't discount this versatile catch-all if you're, say, slicing up some pineapple for the rack. Which, as it happens, you really should be doing.
