    CookinCowgirl's Note:

    This recipe is a variation of one from "BBQ USA," and is a great grilled chicken recipe from a fair booth in New York called Baker's Chicken Coop, which became famous in the late 40s. Serve it with potato salad and a read leaf lettuce salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and Granny's Red French Dressing (#116968).

      excellent. been having this since i was a child. it is best if you use chicken quarters and use a meat injector with the sauce before marinating. cook low and slow over charcoal. if you have a gas grill, its best to prebake it on 350 for 30-40 min before grilling. never use white meat, it doesnt come out well.

      i have been using this recipe for almost 50 years. it's the only way to bbq chicken as far as my family is concerned and all 3 of my children use it. i usually marinate the chicken for 2-3 days in a big tupperware container. the longer it sits the more flavor. i use the original recipe but will try this one some time this summer. sounds yummy. thanks.

      This is my all time favorite barbecue sauce for chicken. My recipe calls for 2 cups cider vinegar and uses only 1 T poultry seasoning and 1/2 tsp pepper, and no lemon juice.
