Nice, in your experience is this better on beef or poultry? I assume beef.

My Grandpa uses a similar recipe.

Might i suggest glazing some sunflower seeds and then baking them?

Works well with Chicken and Beef, as i recall.

Hey Darrell, works with beef, chicken or pork. Haven't tried it with fish.

The addition of sunflower seeds sounds like a good one.

Earlier this year, my mouth, tongue and throat started itching when I ate sunflower seeds, a few weeks ago my cheeks and tongue began to swell while I was eating brisket.

Turns out San Marcos, uses sunflower seed oil in the adobo sauce for their chilpotle peppers.

Seems I have to start checking to make sure sunflower products haven't been used in the food I don't make myself.
