I made this last night at work to go with grilled chicken. OH MY GOD! It sold out in about an hour and I made 30 orders of chicken and had to make more of the sauce. Next week RIBS.

Einar, great recipe. I added this to pork spare ribs and everybody oooh'd and aaah'd over it. The sweetness of the sauce when the maple syrup and the onions when cooked down was unreal!
