Recipe by Kathy Sterling

My mom new how to feed a crowd on a budget and this is one of her stand by recipes. I make it as a main dish but have also made it for covered dish dinners and as a side dish when we had cookouts. My family likes the traditional style barbecue sauce but I have tried many of the other flavored sauces and it is also good.
