My husband loves chicken, so when we bought our first charcoal grill, we needed a recipe for barbecued chicken. We ended up combining two recipes to come up with this one. We've used it the past 3 or 4 years now and haven't come across any recipe that's better.

"When my son and his wife were married in our backyard, I served this special roast at the rehearsal dinner," writes B.J. Wall from Lanexa, Virginia.

"I've modified this recipe over the years, increasing the amount of dipping sauce and and adding fresh garlic, " says Nancy Yarlett of Thornhill, Ontario. "I cooked triple the amount for a huge family reunion, and all of my in-laws asked for the recipe!"

“My husband loves pork chops. They're a good source of lean protein and it's easy to change the flavor by using different spices. I created this marinade based on a few I saw in Healthy Cooking.” Jackie Termont - Richmond, Virginia
