Syrup vs Sugar vs Extract

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I'm going to start my next BBB and its going to be maple flavored.  I'm wondering if I use Pops and substitute maple syrup or sugar for the white sugar if that would be sufficient or if I should add maple extract as well?


I have maple wood to smoke it over too but I want that sweet maple sugar taste.


Anyways if you help me out I'll share some QVIEW!


Thanks guys!

Don't think you'll need the maple extract, the syrup should be fine.


You can always put some extra syrup on it when you smoke it.

X2 on Al.  I like to add the maple syrup part way into the smoke to give the smoke a better shot and to still have time to set the glaze.  Subbing in the maple sugar is an interesting idea.  Let us know if you try that. I have never tried the extract, I would be worried about that, but again, if you try it, let us know?


Good luck and good smoking.

I'll try sugar for one and syrup for the other.  I'll post all results.

Syrup was a rousing success.  It was nice and maple-ey but I would still add some syrup during the smoking process.  If you are willing or able I suggest switching out.


And if you're comfortable with the price difference. A dollar a lb vs 8 bucks for 2 cups.

I have made a few Canadian Bacons and added maple sryup to them just before I smoke.  They turn out amazing!!

My latest batch didn't have any maple in it and I'm sorely missing it.  I guess I'll HAVE to eat this high end delicious bacon without that maple-ey flavor.
