"As viscous as motor oil swirled in a swamp, redolent of burnt bell peppers nested in by incontinent mice and a finish reminiscent of the dregs of a stale can of Coca-Cola that someone has been using as an ashtray. Not a bad drink, though."--Excerpt from "The Moose Turd Wine Tasting" by T. A. Nonymous

Personal Notes:
When we traveled to Texas for Hayden Family reunions, the best part was watching my uncles barbecue. The big three, Uncle Benny, Uncle Stape and Uncle Tony, would guard the barbecue, faithfully, with beers in hand (usually Pearl, Schlitz and Jax). I asked them to teach me how to barbecue. They REALLY knew what they were doing!

I made this chicken to serve at Cousin Jimmy's daughter's wedding. I made 250 leg quarters to serve 125 guests.
