    I thought they were going to be difficult to make but was pleasantly surprised to find that they were really easy. My son is a picky eater, as is most of my family, and they loved them.

    I made this recipe for a bbq and it went over well, the only problem was the recipe was not too clear on what to do with the salsa?? Was I suppose to mix it with the meat, cause that is what I did. A few people said the A1 sauce was a little overpowering but other than that it went well. Thank You.
