Recipe by The Big Cheese

Long ago, there was a factory here in Murphy, NC named Rimco. My dad and many others worked there, even when it changed hands and took a different name. Each summer, there would be a big company cookout, and this chicken was what we all looked forward to. It's a versatile recipe, this is the base recipe for grilling. You can also use your favorite breading to fry it after it's soaked in the brine.
