The little town of Herscher IL has been having Labor Day celebrations for over 80 years now. The celebration includes a parade in the morning, a craft show, carnival rides and games, and lots of local talent showcased on the stage at the park. When I was child a local "hatchery" would grill barbecued chicken to promote their business. You could smell the wonderful aroma of the chicken as it grilled during the parade so that locals and visitors could head to the park afterwards for lunch. The man who owned the hatchery, Marwood Hendrix, said that he would increase the level of pepper at events where beer was sold (like the Labor Day celebration). His early batches of chicken were light on pepper but he increased the pepper for the later crowd. The recipe is shared by the local newspaper every year around Memorial Day so that everyone can still enjoy it.

How to Make Hendrix BBQ Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat the sauce ingredients together and stir occassionaly. The above quantities are needed to cook 25 cut halves of chicken. Cook the chicken over a slow heat; turn and baste occassionally.
  2. I've pared the recipe down because we usually only cook 8-10 chicken leg quarters at a time. For this amount of chicken I use 2 T. margarine, 8 oz vinegar, 1 T salt, and 1/2 T. pepper.
