BBQ Chicken Recipe

My husband ate some of this barbecued chicken at work when his friend brought it in for lunch.  Derek asked for the recipe.  

Where I grew up volunteer fire companies, Boy Scouts and local schools would sell BBQ chicken as fundraisers.   This BBQ chicken smelled and tasted like THAT that kind of chicken...but Derek and my dad both agree that this has more flavor throughout the chicken and not just on the skin!  We really enjoyed these grilled chicken drumsticks.   

Pappy's BBQ Chicken
2/3 cup warm water (not boiling)
1/3 cup vinegar
 1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup butter, melted
Chicken (Wings and drumsticks work great!)

Preheat grill to 250°.  Mix together all ingredients.  Spray or brush (or even dip) the sauce on the  chicken as you place each piece of meat on the grill.  Spray or brush chicken with sauce frequently.  Use all of the sauce before chicken is finished cooking.  Grill drumsticks for about 45+/- minutes, or until chicken is completely cooked.  Adjust times for other cuts of meat. 

We've made this at home twice now, and it really is a great way to grill chicken.  Thank you, Todd, for sharing your Pappy's recipe with us (and giving us permission to share it here)!  This will likely be our summer recipe for grilling for company!

  1. We just got a grill a few months ago(sad, huh?!), and Jonathan has been using it a good bit this summer already. I've been looking for new ideas, though, so I'll be sure to let him try this one! :)
