Good stuff. I did cut back the dressing to 8oz.as that seemed to be plenty, and increased the brown sugar until it was sweet enough for our tastes. (about 1/3 cup). An easy & tasty recipe that I'll likely make again.

Fanatic!! It tasted just like BBQ and was great with onions and pickles. Thank you for sharing. Chef # 220151.
