We thought this very good! It has a spicy flavor with sweet undertones. I followed the recipe exactly and used the orange juice option. DPN, thanks for the post!

Had this tonight for BBQ chicken. It was great, I think it would be very nice on ribs too. The orange juice gives it a little something extra. I didn't have any liquid smoke, so I had to leave that out, but still it was very good. I also quartered the recipe and it was more than enough for two large chicken breasts.
