3 stars, tasty, will try again with substantial tweaks, like cutting back on onion & garlic a bit (both a little overwhelming). Had no root beer concentrate so used 4C root beer in sauce instead of 3, then cooked everything down to 2 cups. Cook & reduce root beer to 1 cup BEFORE adding chili sauce---as soon as you add chili it starts to splatter BADLY. Everywhere. Even through a splatter screen. You may need 2 cups sauce if tailgating the next day so it doesn't dry out but if same day it's too much & too runny. Cook down to 1-1/2 cups.
