This is my version of a Pillsbury recipe. I just think they are better if you add the cheese after partially baked and not at the beginning. When I made it the cheese was over-baked and hard. I also tried them with Bulls-eye BBQ sauce and the Open Pit was liked much more. I made them for my neice and nephews for one of their birthdays and this recipe has been a staple in their house also. Good for kids, but I like them too.

I have made these for a long time but we called them Bar-be-cups. I love use the brown sugar barbecue sauce. Very good recipe and the kids love it

Made these for dinner last night and we loved em'! I used the 85% lean beef, 2 1/2 Tbsps. brown sugar & Sweet Baby Ray's Honey Barbecue Sauce. And lots of onion, of course. Meat lovers that we are, I bought the super-size buttermilk biscuits,{a 16 oz. pkg. with 8 biscuits in it}, and made them in my new jumbo muffin pan! At first I was worried they might be too sloppy to eat but they set very well and I had no trouble picking it up and zooming it to my mouth! SO loved them too- when he asks "how many are left?" you know you snagged a good one! I liked them so much, in fact, that I think I will add them to our Christmas buffet but will make the regular-sized one's this time. Thanks for posting- these will be making a regular appearance at our house!
