    In a small bowl, combine the fresh ground pepper and sugar, and set aside.

    In a small heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat, add the balsamic vinegar and bring to a low boil. Adjust the heat to maintain a steady simmer and reduce the balsamic vinegar until it resembles a syrup, or until it can coat the back of a spoon, 15-20 minutes.

    Remove the glaze from the heat and let it cool. Add the Grand Marnier and pinch of salt, to taste.

    When ready to cook, set the Traeger temperature to 450°F and preheat with the lid closed for 15 minutes.
