    too too sweet great flavor but the sweetness over powers the other flavors i say do without some of the sugars

    i tried this recipe, and didnt like it at all. i dont like sweet meat, so i used half the amount of sugars, half the amount of ketchup, but still it was sweet. and not very tasty at all.

    not recommended at all. dont know why they call it “Best BBQ recipe”

    I prefer using the newerhalogen ovens, they’re more efficient and you can use them for many things, the best one I’ve found is the Fagor Halogen Tabletop Oven, it’s rather inexpensive, and unlike a dehydrater, it’s very useful, I use it all the time, it comes with a parts list and costs, and it outlasts the NuWave, many times over, its glass not cheap plastic, I’ve had the NuWave, and it didn’t last over a year, I’ve had this for a while. Thank you.
