Cannabis and … barbeque?

It’s possible you read the title of yourself and thought,

“No way.”

If you did, I don’t blame you. Cannabis and barbeque sauce aren’t necessarily two things that go together.

Except for the fact that they really do go together.

Don’t believe me?

“Adding cannabis edibles to your grilled delights can provide both you and your guests with an enhanced dining experience. The secret is to add marijuana … to your sauce. Cannabis-infused BBQ sauce allows you to tamper with all sorts of different meals while delivering serious flavour,” an article originally published at Foli says.

Not that we’ve established that the partnership between barbeque sauce and cannabis is, in fact, one that makes sense, let’s take a look at some recipes listed in the article.
