"The flavor was a winner, but the sauce was very runny, and not a glaze. Maybe it just depends on what brand of chili sauce you use. They are quite sweet (a little too sweet for my taste). Anyway, the second time I made them, I cut down on the sugar and added a few tablespoons of Frank's Red Hot - very yummy alteration! It cut some of the sweetness and added just a little kick. I highly recommend it!"
