    Magnificent! I followed the recipe pretty much to the T and it turned out great. Extremely tasty with a punch that contributed to the greatness of the dish. The sauce is superbly tasty...I loaded it over mashed Red skin potatoes and green beans. Don’t miss this really good recipe,

    Love this! Quick, easy, flavorful. I've made several times and with good meat and a seasoning blend that fits your taste, you can't go wrong.

    My husband thought they were pretty good, but I didn't care for them. The meat was tender and juicy, but the BBQ flavor was just a little overwhelming to me.
