"I liked the taste, but the sauce was too watery for me. Next time, I will add less water."

"Sauce was watery, there was no barbeque taste at all. I followed the recipe exactly, except I didn't have any celery seed."

"These chops were great. Very tender and sauce had a good tangy bite. Used leftovers next day for pork chop sandwiches, just added a little onion to leftover sauce and heated it up and spread over buns. Took meat off bone and made a tasty sandwich. YUM!"
