Sloppy Joes go barbecue

Sometimes there's nothing better on a brisk evening than sloppy Joes. They're easy to prepare, always a big hit, and the best thing about them is that you can pick them up with your hands. That's right, no silverware necessary.

When you have kids, anything they can pick up with their hands is always an instant winner. Most kids hate to slice and dice. Even I hate to slice and dice sometimes. So anything on a bun gets a big A+ from me and my family, which is why these sloppy Joes are the perfect answer to "what's for dinner?"

What makes these sloppy Joes really special is that they're barbecued and baked, right in the oven. Who could ask for anything more?
