What is hot honey?

Mike’s Hot Honey (#3087) is a new item in our catalogs, and boy are we glad we were introduced to it! This honey is made from 100% pure wildflower honey from American bees and infused with chilies to make an incomparable condiment. Add sweet heat to smoked meats, fried chicken and wings, sauces, baked beans, veggies, and more. It was originally crafted by a pizzeria for drizzling over pizza then sold by the bottle when it become so popular! Wondering how else to use it?

  • Drizzle it on pizza, fried chicken or BBQ. 
  • Pair with your favorite cheese and add to cocktails or tea.
  • Mix into dressings or marinades and even drizzle on ice cream!

Tips for the best ribs

  • To put it simply: low and slow is the way to go. As long as you follow this rule, you’ll get tender, tear off-the-bone ribs every time.
  • If you want extra tender ribs, add 1/4 cup of vinegar to the water. Not only does this help tenderize, it also adds more flavor.
  • For moist ribs: add more sauce, cover in foil, and allow to rest before serving.
