Ok basically I'm going to start this recipe of the week thing. Its basically me finding a recipe somewhere, making it, and giving my 2 cents on it. Also, to spice things up. haha. My Dad will say what he thinks about it. For all of you who know my Dad, you know he hates so called "off the wall stuff" but hes also a VERY good cook. So this should be interesting...

My 2 Cents: This was REALLLYYY good. The combination of the sweet honey n herb glaze PLUS the grilled taste. AMAZING! Plus you can amp up the spices if you want. This is definitely melt in your mouth good. This is definitely one of my new favorite grilling recipes

The Critic (AKA my Dad): I thought it was really really good. It was easy to make and had a really good even flavor to it. It wasnt strong or super sweet on anything. It surprised me. My only recommendation is to double the amount of sauce that the recipe calls for.
