Summer is in full swing, which means it's time to brush up on those outdoor grilling skills. To that end, meet your new best friends: Here are seven sauces, rubs and marinades to kick your grill game into gear.
This aptly named product from Obisone will have you dusting everything you eat with black garlic. The organic garlic cloves are fermented and aged, giving them their dark color and rich, funky flavor. A little goes a long way with this product—try it in a dry rub on a steak, or mix it with softened butter and rub it under the skin of your chicken before grilling. $24.99/2oz., obisone.com
This complex, tangy and incredibly versatile syrup from Carr's Ciderhouse is made similarly to maple syrup, but with 100% apple cider. Brush it on pork chops, duck, chicken or vegetables before grilling so that it gets smoky and caramelized. $16/12.7 oz., carrsciderhouse.com
