The Best Darn Way to Barbecue Chicken

Recipe by lisar
READY IN: 1hr 10mins




  • Prepare the chicken as indicated then wash in cold water and dry with paper towels.
  • In medium size saucepan, melt the margarine over a medium low heat, adding all of the other ingredients.
  • The reason for using margarine instead of butter is to reduce the burning while cooking.
  • When the mixture has heated through, let the mixture set awhile to let the flavors “marry”.
  • Make sure your charcoal is gray-white before starting to grill.
  • One other implement is needed-- a bottle of water to douse the flames (and there will be flames).
  • Dip each piece of chicken into the sauce until covered than place on the grill about 10 inches from the coal.
  • You will have flame-ups, but don’t worry about it, that is normal-just keep dousing with water and you will have lots of smoke.
  • The smoke is the real secret to the great flavor.
  • Let the chicken cook for about 45 minutes, turning and dipping in the sauce about every 5 minutes or so.
  • This recipe requires constant attention- don’t walk away.
