When it’s warm out, I love to BBQ. It’s the last few days of summer, so grab a cold-one, grill up your chicken or meat, and before you serve, jazz it up with your favorite BBQ sauce, but with a little twist (of fresh orange juice that is). Your dish would be great paired with a traditional Blue Moon Ale, served with a wedge of orange.
