This was so good. I never thought of combining barbecue sauce with thyme. I used my home made BBQ sauce. I cooked it in the dutch oven and it turned out perfect. It's a keeper.
Very good stuff. I'm not sure what the prunes did for it, but it went well all together. It was nice and sweet, but not a candy like sweetness. I added some black pepper to suit my own tastes. I used granny smith apples because I like a crisper apple. Made and reviewed for Every Day Holiday Tag - Thanks! :)
