  • 2 cups pure maple syrup
  • 3 ounces bourbon
  • Salt, to taste

Step 1: Set up your smoker according to the manufacturer’s instructions and preheat to 225 degrees. Pour the maple syrup in a disposable aluminum foil pan and smoke for 1 hour.

Step 2: In the meantime, reduce the bourbon to half its volume by simmering in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Whisk into the smoked maple syrup.

Step 3: Add salt to taste. Transfer to a small pitcher for serving. Store any leftovers in a covered jar in the refrigerator. Rewarm before serving.
