Thsi is a recipe from "Down Home with the Nelley's." Pat said it was created by his daughter, Spenser. I have not tried yet but will soon. It is here for safe keeping.

This was really good. Love the bbq sauce flavor. I added chopped onions with the peppers.........next time I make it I think I will add mushrooms, too.
