This sauce smelled sooo good while I was preparing it but I must say the cider vinegar tasted a bit off to me with the rest of the ingredients. My bf kept asking me if I cooked the turkey in apple juice (which he doesn't care for). However, the idea of cooking drumsticks in the crock pot with BBQ sauce is great. Next time I'll just use store bought sauce though.
