When using Bonus BBQ sauce, the most asked question is when to apply the sauce. Meat/Chicken should be nearly done before you begin to use any barbeque sauce. You do not want to use an overabundance of sauce to avoid overwhelming the flavor of the meat. By no means would you ever want to marinade meat in the barbeque sauce as this will quickly burn the meat and not allow it to cook thoroughly. Since Bonus BBQ sauce has a limited amount of fructose corn syrup, it will not burn as quickly as other sauces that contain higher amounts of fructose corn syrup.

By far, the most frequently asked question is about the best way to marinade and for how long. We recommend using a Ziploc bag and just barely covering the meat, then sealing the bag and working the marinade throughout the meat by frequently turning the bag in the refrigerator. You should marinade most meats overnight when possible while chicken should be marinaded for 4-6 hours.   When using marinade on fish, we recommend no longer than an hour.
