    Wondering if anyone has used blueberry juice for there meat when putting in foil. I cooked some chicken once with a blueberry ale it was delicious with the Cajun seasoning and the blueberry taste

    I've used tart cherry, apple juice, apple cider, apple wine, bourbon, apple jack, and hard pear cider.  I'll have to add blueberry ale to the list!

    Something I want to try and smoke with. I only did it at a hotel I was cooking in an electric skillet. The 10 guys that had it were amazed. I have a bunch of frozen blueberries and was thinking of throwing a cup or two in

  9. Blueberry sounds good on chicken!  I tried a premixed lime Margarita with ribs when I had nothing else to marinade with and the ribs were a hit with the family. That was a marinade however, not sauce.
