A meal I made a few weeks ago for my wife me. I documented the entire process with my iPhone to see how a instructional recipe video (mainly slides) would turn out. Hope you enjoy, and you have got to make this! The wings were "Off The Hook", if I do say so myself. I got the recipe from Dr. Pepper.com, courtesy of Guy Fieri. It's a keeper in my recipe box :D The portobello mushrooms where tossed with extra virgin olive oil, and Emeril's essence seasoning grilled on indirect heat, and OMG, they are soooo good! Salad goes very well with this combo! Enjoy! BTW, the left over glaze, freezes well.


For the glaze
Soft drink 24 Ounce (dr pepper soft drink used)
Garlic cloves 4
Paprika 1 Tablespoon
Tomato paste 2 Tablespoon
Apple cider vinegar 1 Tablespoon
Ground mustard 1/2 Teaspoon

Kosher salt 1 Teaspoon
Cayenne 1 Pinch
