Tom, thanks for that recipe.. it was complex time wise to make.. but it was good. Made up a good batch for a recent church potluck and it went over big. I thought it might have been a bit spicy.. but even the young'uns loved it.

I'll try to find the BBQ Shoppe version to see if it is a bit simpler for the next time..
