Preparation / Directions:
I just have to thank everyone on this list, even the newbies, for the instructions, insights. inspiration, and humor so selflessly shared here. I'm just finishing dessert, after waiting 5 hours for more room, from another wonderful meal from the smoker. Served with Big Wheel's cornbread (wonderful!) and homemade applesauce.
I brined about 10 pounds of chicken quarters and pieces overnight, smoked them over maple until about done, and then coated the chicken with the old family recipe (doubled) of BBQ sauce for chicken, and then gave it about 30 minutes more of smoke. I've used this sauce on the grill many times, to good effect, but it's so much better on brined chicken!
I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do! Combine all ingredients in medium saucepan, and cook for 15 minutes. Baste on chicken during last 10-15 minutes of grilling. Otherwise, you can chill the sauce, and then use it as a marinade as well. This will make enough sauce for 4 or 5 chicken quart
