Default cooking with beer

I tried to brew a porter but it ended up way too sweet for my liking. Too much malto dextrin. Drinkable but not really enjoyable. Does any one have any recipe sugestions to salvage this beer as either a barbecue sauce or glaze?

1) Find Brewtopia's BBQ sause recipe.
2) Take some and reduce it for an ice cream topping (Lucy Saunders)
3) http://www.firestonebeer.com/Creatin...s_Blending.ppt

I'm not sure I would do that if it's hopped (what I've had and tried to re-create was using runnings from the MLT, pre-hopping). I've *heard* that boiling a beer down into a sauce would result in it becoming extremely bitter.

Yea.

I guess it depends on how hopped it was. Said it was too sweet.

I knew some Jamaicans that liked their porters and stouts like a rootbeer float. Too sweet for me.

Or chili, if the IBUs weren't too high.

The alcohol in beer helps to tenderize meat. So yeah, a marinade would be a good idea. Buy a bunch of steaks and have at it!!!
