This recipe has been passed down from my Grandmother to my Mother and myself, My children now make the famous barbecue sauce. I have updated to fit my personal likes. The perfect blend of spicy and hot are a wonderful treat for the palet.




  1. Sauce Directions :
  2. Place all above ingredients in a medium pot and whisk together. Simmer on medium heat for 45 minutes to an hour or until it has reduced by at least a third and thickens.
  3. Use the lemon slices as a garnish over finished chicken.
  4. Preheat grill on medium heat. Prepare two large sheet pans with foil and spray with nonstick spray. Wash chicken, pat dry. Place chicken on baking pans. Lift the skin and rub with butter as far as you can. Push your fingers. Then lift skin again and place about 1 tsp. to 1 ½ tsp. of chicken rub under skin—rub it in good. Then rub the outside skin with butter and chicken rub. Continue this until all 8 leg thigh pieces are done. Place chicken on preheated grill at 350°F for about 40 minutes to 1 hour with lid down. Turn every 10 to 20 minutes. Apply sauce during the last fifteen minutes of cooking to both sides with a barbecue mop or a paintbrush. Remove chicken from grill. Cover in sweet barbecue sauce and let stand five minutes. Garnish with lemon and fresh parsley
