Here in Michigan, the outdoor grilling season is pretty short, so I often use my oven for "grilling." The barbecue sauce is equally good on chicken or shrimp. —Diane Nemitz, Ludington, Michigan

"Delicious! The pineapple lover in our family heartily endorses this! Lots of good flavors in action here. Can easily substitute cooking wine for the port."

"Moist and very tasty! I didn't have port or grape juice so I used pomegranate and used double the orange juice because I didn't have concentrate and the salsa was amazing. I am trying on chicken next!"

"This was simple to make and tasty. The pineapple salsa was the real star here, take the time to reduce it, the flavor will intensify. The heat in the dry rub pairs nicely with the sweet heat of the pineapple salsa."
