  1. The cabbage with hot sauce sounds fabulous to me, but where do you buy sambal oelek? Can you just use any old hot sauce?

  2. Is the BBQ sauce for the chicken very spicey?

  3. no, i dont think so but you should note it’s more of a marinade verses a typical BBQ sauce. i would almost say it is an asian light- BBQ marinade if that makes sense. i make a big batch then freeze to use later. also, i would marinate all day over even overnight when using. 🙂
