I picked up a couple of premade bison burgers from a local farmer and will be grilling them tonight, weather permitting. What's the best kind of BBQ sauce to apply? Sweet, spicy, smoky, what?

Does anyone have a recommendation for something I can substitute the vinegar with, maybe even something synthetic (if it's harmless)?
