"Overly sweet sauce overpowering the ham."

"I've made these several times now for my family. They're really tasty. I just use the whole bottle of chili sauce and don't measure the ingredients exactly....they've always come wonderful! They are a little messy though!"

"This recipe was so incredibly easy to make, and everyone loved it. Next time I will use a little less brown sugar since it was a touch too sweet for me. But even the kids liked it!"

"Just made this a 2nd time, this time for a Super Bowl party. It was a hit, served it on wheat buns. I doubled the recipe, very easy."
