This is yummy and very easy! I've made it up in advance to take on campouts and picnics. You can double or triple the recipe easily and make it for large groups.

This was Superb! Easy to prepare and delicious. The beef was moist and the sauce had just the right combination of bbq flavor and sweetness.

Very tasty. I used garlic, ozark seasoning and 4S seasoning salt on the beef as it cooked and it was very good. The sauce was really easy to put togther. I think next time I will cook it in the slow cooker though. I didn't like my oven tied up for that long.
