I didn't use coleslaw on these, so that may have helped with the flavor, because I did feel that although this recipe calls for a ton of ingredients to be added to the burgers, they did not seem to have enough flavor. I would have loved a more BBQ flavor and perhaps more brown sugar. I'm sure I will try them again and will play around a bit with the amounts of each ingredient. It's a great recipe, but I think it just needs to be tweaked a little hear and there.
