Looking for "E-J's Chicken Barbeque Sauce Recipe

I used to have a recipe for a vinegar based "yellow" marinade/basting sauce that was called E-J's (as in Endicott-Johnson Shoe CO.) chicken sauce. I remember it had eggs,or egg yolks, and poultry seasoning in it . I lost the recipe and hope somebody out there has had it passed down to them and would share it with me.

  1. This is the Cornell chicken marinade recipe--it sounds close to what you're looking for:

    1 egg
    1 cup vegetable oil
    2 cups cider vinegar
    3 tablespoons salt
    1 tablespoon poultry seasoning
    1 teaspoon ground black pepper

    Crack the egg into a medium bowl and whisk until beaten. Slowly whisk in the oil until fully blended. Then whisk in the vinegar, salt, poultry seasoning, and ground black pepper. Set some of the sauce aside to use for basting while grilling. Place chicken in shallow baking dish, and coat with sauce. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.

    1. Three years later . . .

      We used to live in Endicott and enjoyed EJ Sauce. This is my mother's receipe and the one I use. Simple, but good.

      For 10 halves

      1C Oil
      1pt Cider Vinegar
      3T Salt
      1t Poultry Seasoning
      1t Pepper
      1 egg

      Beat egg, add oil & beat, add rest and stir

      Dip halves in sauce and place on coals. Turn every 8 minutes @ roast for 1 ½ hours. Baste every 2-3 minutes

      1. I believe ej chicken differs from cornell chicken with the type of vinegar used - EJ - white vin and Cornell - Cider Vinegar
