This is a definite family favourite – and the great about this recipe is that you can make it on the barbecue  or in your kitchen!The amounts here will make enough to serve up to 16 people, but it is perfectly fine to freeze portions for a quick dinner of lunch later.

1/2 cup ofpacked brown sugar

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon of ground mustard

Freezing directions:

This work the best if you put small portions into ciplock bags and freeze them. You will then be able to take out the number of portions you need.
