The star of this BBQ Show was this sauce.
When I told my husband we were going to grill for dinner, he asked if we had any BBQ sauce.
Umm. No. I seem to have forgotten that part! But, I promised, I could make some.
He said to make sure to add some Jack.
Happily, my dear man. Happily.
I'd like to say that the spices are a big part of the show here as well. I like spices. Lots of them. You can give me whatever is in the fridge, and if I have spices I'll make it a scrumptious something.
1 tsp Celery Salt
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Dried Chopped Onion
1/4 tsp Chili Pepper
1/4 tsp Cayenne Pepper
1/4 cup Brown Sugar
1/4 cup Molasses
1 cup Ketchup
1/4 cup Applecider Vinegar
2 shots of Gentleman Jack, (I'm pretty sure my husband poured in more while I wasn't looking!)
Pour everything into a bowl and mix it up.
Have some small eager hands help you whisk it all together.
I was almost sorry to have to put the chicken in it. It's so yummy. I would definitely say to let your chicken sit and soak. Let it marinate for at least an hour in the fridge so all those flavors can soak into your chicken.
When you're ready to eat, fire up that grill and let the smells wash over you. Its the smell of summer at it's finest.
I love to grill, but for some reason the men always seem to take that over. Hmmm. I handed over the tongs. He'll only be here for a short while, I'll let him get his grilling in.
Let that sauce caramelize. A little crunchy almost-burnt skin...delish.
I served up a fresh mixed greens salad and some brown rice to go along with our chicken. There was nothing left. The kids came back as I was going to put the few chicken legs away and ate them cold. Alright then. It's a keeper!
