If you prefer crispier burnt ends or thicker consistency to your sauced items and sides, consider adding 2-3 minutes to your oven or grill heating times. Sides and sauced items will get a bubbly layer and burnt ends get a flavorful char that many barbecue connoisseurs love. STORAGE: All of our products are fully cooked.
