No matter how you spell it - BBQ, barbecue, or barbeque - grilling is a big part of 4th of July celebrations. This year, we suggest that you try our Joyce Chen Hoisin Sauce (regular and gluten free) in place of ketchup or bottled BBQ sauce. Hoisin is a deeply aromatic, velvety rich condiment. It's great on hamburgers and steak. It's makes a delicious marinade. Send us your recipes!! We'll post them on our Facebook page.
