Five essential barbecue ingredients from Grill Nation, the new book by grill expert and Travel Channel host David Guas.

Cacao Nibs
Finely ground in a food processor, roasted cacao nibs make a chocolaty steak rub.

Sorghum Syrup
Guas prefers “sassy, bright” sorghum to “heavy, one-dimensional” molasses as a complex glaze for beef ribs.


Guava Paste

This Cuban pantry staple comes packed in a tin; mixed with orangejuice and rum, it becomes a sweet and tangy barbecue sauce.


Blackberry Preserves
Fruit jam lends a rich, dark, wine-like flavor to a sauce for pork tenderloin.

Hard Cider
Grilled pork pairs well with apples, particularly when the meat is first brined in hard cider, then glazed with apple jelly and Calvados.
