AwShit Barbecue Chicken

Barbecue chicken: it's juicy, messy, sticky, and delicious--- especially with an extra kick of AwShit! This mouth-watering, finger-licking chicken will leave you speechless (your mouth will be full!).


* One 3 1/2-pound chicken, cut into 8 pieces
* Kosher salt
* Cold water
* 1/2 cup minced onion
* 2 large garlic cloves, minced
* 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
* 2 Tbsp AwShit
* 1 Tbsp SpecialShit
* 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
* 1/2 cup cider vinegar
* 1/2 cup tomato paste
* 2 Tbsp molasses


Dissolve 1/4 cup of kosher salt in 2 quarts of cold water in a large bowl. Add the chicken; refrigerate for 2 hours.

Meanwhile, melt the butter in a medium saucepan. Add the onion and garlic and cook over low heat until softened. Add the AwShit and SpecialShit; cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add 1 cup of water, the brown sugar and vinegar and bring to a simmer. Stir in the tomato paste and molasses and simmer over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes. Let the sauce cool.

Light your grill. Drain the chicken and pat dry, then grill over a moderately low fire, turning a few times, until just cooked through; about 25 minutes for the white meat; about 35 minutes for the dark meat.

Set aside half of the barbecue sauce; brush the remaining sauce on the chicken. Continue grilling the chicken for 10 minutes, or until nicely glazed. Serve with the reserved sauce.
