    A barbeque believer will not profane pork by boiling, liquid-smoking, submeging in sous-vide, or affirm with those who do.

    As a European I am always amazed by the amount of sugar that I find in many American recipes and products, and that seems to include marinades. Is there any really good reason for them? I just find a lot of things here too sweet to eat...

    Imagine our surprise the first time we take a big bite of whipped cream most places in Europe. :big grin: Stefan, I suspect it may be because "sweeteners" were not as much of a luxury item in the New World early on like they were across the pond.

    For marinades it helps caramelization. For most things it is a vicious cycle caused by people getting used to a certain amount of sugar and wanting more then getting used to that amount, etc.

    That is really amazing - I use the same recipe except somehow the hard cider doesn't seem to get on the meat!
