I was going to start a post for a review of #5...then I saw this one so I'll just add my comments here.

As a foreword, I have to inform you that I am originally from NJ...but I did do 3 tours at Ft, Bragg, NC during my 37 combined years of Active Army and Civil Service.

That said...I DO NOT like a lot of vinegar...(wine on the other hand...). So, knowing that some amount of vinegar is beneficial to the taste buds I made a batch of #5 the other day and it's all gone.

The only changes I made (not liking vinegar) was reducing the vinegar by half...1/4 Cup, and not adding meat drippings. (The PP was from a previous session). I'll have to do another session (or two) before the snow flies to make it through the winter.

OK, MY REVIEW: FANTASTIC FLAVOR! It surprised the hell out of me. It checked off all the flavor boxes. We will be making this again. Thanks, Steve.
