I wish I had a story to go along with this dish, but sadly I don’t. This is just one of those recipes that starts out in my mind, and then I cross my fingers, and hope for the best. I did these on my baby…” yes I call my BBQ my baby “ ha ha ha. If you like flavors with a kick, please try the chili garlic sauce…you won’t be disappointed!
