    Hey Denie.

    We’re enjoying the 80 degree weather in Chicago and want to get the grill going again. We’d like to try this one but I had a question. What’s the difference if using wine or malt vinegar? Is the flavor different? And if I use wine, would you recommend red, white or does it matter?

      Hi Dawn, I actually sometime use both, but skipping the vinegar would be a mistake because it ads such an important element. And use a dry red wine..Have fun!!!
