    First, this recipe is greatly improved if the lemon juice is doubled to 2 tablespoons. Second, I don't like black pepper so I left it out of the recipe. The mustard I used was Gray Poupon Country Style (if type and brand make a difference). I took MARGALITA4's suggestion to try it on pork after making the wings (which were very good). I used country style pork ribs, marinated them overnight, and we all though this marinate made them even more delicious than the wings--so I next tried lamb chops. If anyone reading this recipe likes lamb chops, this marinade is fantastic on lamb. Oh, don't use bottled, chopped garlic in this recipe. The difference between fresh and bottled is dramatic. One of my 3 tests used the bottled for 1/2 the recipe as a test and it was not as good.  -  25 Jun 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made these for my husband and Dad and baked/broiled in the oven rather than grill due to weather.The smell of the marinade was fantastic and they cooked up beautiful.Both of them loved them.I thought they were great too and will definately be making them again.  -  01 Feb 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We decided to have a wings for dinner night at my house and this was on the menu. This was a huge hit with both kids and adults! Easy preparation and wonderfully tasty but not spicy. Excellent!  -  15 Dec 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
