    Awesome--it is going in my favorites! I made as directed, and it was done in 6 hours. There were hardly any leftovers.

    This was delicious!! Only change I made, I did not add salt to sauce. There is enough sodium in other ingredients that you don't need it.Really good recipe!!

    Very good!! My 11 year daughter loved it so much, she went back to the crock pot and filled her plate with seconds. I used Sweet Baby Rays Original BBQ sauce in this and it came out amazing!!
