Recipe by SilentCricket

This recipe came from the Pacific Daily News newspaper on Guam. Sounds like comfort food to me and a great idea for all those football fans out there! A breeze to clean-up too!

I served this to guests..doubled the recipe for 5 aduts, and there was not a scrap left...they just kept eating and eating. We all liked this very much. I followed the recipe exactly, except I cooked at 350 for about l hour. The recipe bags were new to me too..I used the foil kind that you fold to seal. They worked great, and the cleanup was so easy. Great tasting bbq..a little spicy with just a hint of sweet!
