pretty good! different taste for spaghetti. used up some left over pulled pork. bbq sauce was really good! added a touch of honey cuz the man said it needed to be a little sweeter. Im gonna add some red pepper flakes next time! thanks for posting cookiedog!
This is very good! I halved the recipe and used red bell pepper, red onion, and leftovers from one of those chickens you get already roasted from the supermarket. The only change I made was to cut back the sugar just a little bit, and I'm glad I did as it was just about the right sweetness for my taste. I also just realized that I forgot the garlic salt - whoops! I do think the serving sizes are way off though - I got about 3-4 servings from a half recipe. I'm looking forward to trying this again with pork or beef. Thanks for posting!
