The Jailor's Special Chicken and BBQ Sauce

READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
Recipe by Redneck Epicurean

This recipe came from a community cookbook, which are my favorite kind. The rumor was that they serve this sometimes at the jail. I'm making a reservation for a room that night because this stuff is pretty good!

Excellent marinade and tangy sauce. I used the marinade for chicken breasts and for pork chops. I'll use this again. I grilled these instead of using the oven. I first grilled over the coals for grill marks and then indirectly for the rest of the time. The temperature was about what the recipe calls for. The sauce is tangy but not quite as sweet as I like.
