Quick Notes

Be sure to apply glaze only towards the end of the cooking process or it will burn. This glaze does not hold up to long cooking times as it does not caramelize well.


This recipe is not spicy. The chipotle gives it just enough kick to be a nice heat in your mouth but it is far from hot. If you prefer to have more heat then simply add more chipotle.
If you don’t have lime juice you can substitute orange juice or lemon juice.
Regular bbq sauce works just as well as gluten free, sugar free bbq sauce.
