Meathead Suggests: Smoked Apple Butter

I love [Jar Sessions smoked apple butter] on peanut butter sandwiches, with blue cheese on crackers, on a cheddar grilled cheese sandwich, or even baked brie on crusty bread. Of course it is great on English muffins, on toast, and in dips. I have used it as a slather on ribs under the rub when I cook them indoors, and mixed with Southern Comfort and apple Cider, served hot, on a winter evening.
