The How-To

  2. Add cayenne, brown sugar, salt, pepper, smoked paprika, garlic powder, and agave.  Allow to combine, stir frequently. About 3 minutes.
  3. Remove sauce from pan and set aside.
  4. Using same pan, saute mushrooms in oil until browned slightly.  Set aside.
  5. Using same pan,  heat Pit Boss over medium heat with oil.  Add mushrooms. Coat with as much sauce as desired, we used about 3 tablespoons.
