"This was excellent, very juicy... Will leave out the onions when fixing for a crowd since some people seem to really hate onions. Will saute onions and have on the side. Am fixing for a crowd for Super Bowl 46."

"Chili sauce,worcestershire sauce,mustard,ketchup all have enought sodium in them. No salt is really needed plus it is much healthier for you without the added sodium!"

"Didn't care for this at all. Meat didn't have a lot of flavor. I guess it might be okay with the bacon on it, but we try and stay away from that."
