Marinade for Delmarva BBQ chicken
(from the Kiwanis, et al, roadside stands)
A few weeks ago, somebody said they'd look into the marinade's recipe. I always love stopping by the Kiwanis stand on Rte 404 at Rte 16 on the way to Rehoboth. I let my nephew the chef - the one who used to work at the Adams-Morgan tapas restaurant (Azuna's?) before the boss ran off with the money (the place operates as a soup & salad place for now, run by the owners of the bar upstairs) - taste that lovely chicken and asked him to guess the main ingredients of the marinade. Within 10 seconds, he said...
apple cider vinegar.
Not white vinegar mind you - he said a.c. vinegar leaves a certain tingle on the tongue. He guessed other ingredients to be salt, pepper & some garlic.
Anybody else have any input?
A few years back we asked about the marinade and were given a long strip of paper with the following recipe printed on it:
Georgetown Kiwanis Club BBQ Sauce
For 100 half chickens:
1 Gallon apple cider vinegar
2 quarts vegetable oil
2 cups salt
5 tsp pepper
1/2 cup poultry seasoning
For 5 half chickens:
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
5 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
Baste liberally at each turning of pieces.
