Your wife is wrong, I'm sorry. But, she's like my fiance'. No appreciation for spicy-ness. When you come up for the cookout, I'll make yours extra spicy.
The Diet Coke is required - it is more acidic than regular coke, it doesn't taint the flavor of the sauces, and it doesn't leave a lingering "sweetness" in the meat. Soak a steak overnight in diet coke, A1, olive oil, salt, pepper, homemade BBQ and hot sauce, and add butter to it when grilling, and the thing will melt in your mouth when you eat it.
