This slow-baked molasses-and-mustard-flavored western favorite is a perfect party food because it can be made days ahead and just gets better with time. Enjoy it while watching Blazing Saddles,, which, according to creator Mel Brooks, is best seen on video. Claims Brooks, "I can't watch Blazing Saddles on television ... A lot of prudes got together and silly people got together and they cut out everything they thought would be offensive to a 4-year-old."
