What's so special about "Cornell Barbecue Chicken Sauce"?

I've looked at the recipe on-line and can't really fathom what's so special about it.
Or is it special?
It sounds like this sauce:
It is popular in central NYS, at least. A lot of "fund raiser" BBQ's (churches, fire depts, etc.) use it.
I use it primarily as a marinade. I usually mix it 50/50 with either Bone Suckin' or Dinosaur Sensuous Slathering Sauce. MMMM!
I was skeptical at first, too. But it really is quite good. And smells wonderful while it's grilling. I live in Albany and all the BBQ fundraisers use this sauce. I don't know what the egg does. Maybe adds moisture or helps it stick to the chicken. Are you concerned about the salmonella possibilities? I think if you cooked your chicken throroughly it wouldn't be a problem. Any more than the salmonella on the chicken itself would be a problem. By the way, you can get the marinade bottled. The brand is "State Fair". It may only be available in NY, though.
