This is definitely one of my husband's favorite meals. Like most men, he doesn't ever offer a suggestion of what to have for dinner but he has for these. I'm sure they would be great grilled. I have only made them by first baking them in the oven and then cooking them an additional 2 hours on low with the sauce in my crockpot. I find they come out wonderfully tender. The instructions are for grilling--do whatever you please.
