- 3 &ndash 3.5 pounds meaty chicken pieces (breast halves, thighs, and drumsticks)
- 3 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon black pepper
- 1 clove garlic, minced
- 1 cup Balsamic Barbecue Sauce
Place chicken in a large resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. For marinade, stir together lemon juice, oil, salt, pepper, and garlic. Pour over chicken seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours, turning bag occasionally.
Drain chicken, discarding marinade. For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above the pan. Place chicken, bone sides down, on grill rack over drip pan. Cover and grill for 50 to 60 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink (170°F for breast halves, 180°F for thighs and drumsticks), brushing with half of the Balsamic BBQ Sauce during the last 15 minutes of grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Place chicken pieces on grill rack over burner that is off. Grill as above.)
To serve, pass the remaining Balsamic Barbecue Sauce with the chicken.

This whole section of my website is dedicated to helping you find the best recipes and BBQ menu ideas country by country, culture by culture so you can pull together for one big themed cookout. So if America isn't where you want to be then there's plenty more to choose from.
Note:- Barbecue has been around since the dawn of time but American barbecue (the way we know it today) has really only been around since the late 1800's and early 1900's when the first barbecue restaurants started to pop up.
It was further popularized with the advent of the charcoal briquette and it's move into mass production by Henry Ford. It's hard to identify what, when or who developed into the staple that it is today but when you sink your teeth into moist juicy ribs smothered in sweet barbecue sauce it's not difficult to understand why.

If there&rsquos one barbecue recipe that put Alabama in the grill world, it would be their Big Bob Gibson&rsquos White BBQ recipe.
It&rsquos a singular dish that uses half chickens that are heavily seasoned with pepper and salt &ndash nothing else if you want to follow the original recipe. After rubbing the salt and pepper on the chicken, set it aside.
Next, you&rsquoll create a sauce made of 1-quart mayonnaise, horseradish, ½ cup corn syrup, lemon juice, and ¾ quart white vinegar. If you love spicy food like me, add a ¼ tablespoon of cayenne pepper. Blend this well until you achieve a smooth consistency.
After that, you can start grilling the salt-and-pepper laced half chicken. Just when the chicken is about to cook, brush a portion of the sauce you just made. The remaining sauce can be used as a dip.
If you want to achieve the signature Alabama smoke flavor, use a hickory-fired pit. Anyway, a typical charcoal grill did the trick on my cooking.

- 2 tbsp. butter

- 2 garlic cloves
- 1 can chopped tomatoes
- 1 cup ketchup-style chili sauce
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- ½ cup unsulfured molasses
- 2 tbsp. spicy brown or Dijon mustard

- Heat the butter in a heavy-bottomed medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until golden – about 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic and chopped tomatoes and cook for another 2 minutes.
