I guess you could say every slow cooker recipe is a crowd-pleaser. This one is no-fail. It has richness and a sweet-spicy-tangy balance that lifts it out of the sugar-fat dimension some barbecue is stuck in and into a field of green with birds chirping and Frisbees soaring just past your head. Let’s party! Remember to save any leftover sauce. It makes a great glaze for meatloaf and a killer topping for nachos.
