I have made this recipe many times but do not remember where it came from as it is manually written in one of my recipe notebooks-sorry for any credits which should be given. This recipe makes approximately 10-15 servings so you might want to cut the recipe in half if not cooking for a large family. You can also improvise with this whatever BBQ sauce you have on hand can be used...just add honey to it.
