Wow, these look fantastic and taste as good as they look! Serve with Grilled Pita Salad for a great meal straight from the barbeque! From Woman's Day magazine,1999.

YUMMY! I made this last night for ZWT2. I baked mine because I don't have a grill and that took 30 or 40 minutes. Fabulous easy recipe. The rub tastes almost like an Indian curry, but sweeter. Very nice blend with the greasy (in a good way) game meat. Thanks for sharing!
