Musical Maple BBQ Sauce

Many of the Steam Whistle tour guides are musicans. Many of the world's most interesting guitars are made of maple wood. May this recipe, full of the top hit flavours of maple syrup and of course, Steam Whistle Pilsner be music in your mouth!


Blend the ingredients in a saucepan and heat on high until boiling. Simmer for 15 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Use as a baste for anything from BBQed steak and chicken to oven roasts and pork chops.

If a thicker consistancy is desired, opt for he following trick: Blend 1/2 Tbsp corn starch with 1/8 cup of Steam Whistle in a small bowl and then slowly pour the mixture into the sauce, stirring constantly. Boil then reduce heat and simmer until the sauce is thickened to your desires.
