"I was pleasantly surprised by this recipe. I doubted the addition of apples and raisins, but gave it a try anyway. I'm glad I did! It was very good and easy to make. We left out the jalapeno, though. I'll be keeping this recipe and making it again!"

"As far as side dishes go, this recipe is super easy. Also, it's easy to adjust the flavor on this just by changing the type of BBQ sauce you use! I've adjusted depending on what we're serving for dinner to help compliment the flavors of the meal."
