I am biased, Kansas State University bbq chicken is better than Cornell's.

I did try this again. It is good. I just Love listing and watching you cook. I must say Since my Mom cut off a chicken head and then showed me how to pluck it at the tender age of three I cannot deal with it looking so much like a body. I used what I told my kids was supermarket meat. That is boneless breasts. That alone still sounds weird. Never want to see the body but it was tasty as supermarket food. Rock on just not so explicit?

We've had this recipe for many yrs. It's AWESOME,although I don't recall it being white..anyways- you reminded everyone not to use to brush again to baste after chicken is removed from heat- I would recommend not using the marinade either as it has raw chicken in that as well...if you want to use some after removed from heat- save some of it out before hand...

We're here in the Cornell region. If I recall my 4-H days from yesteryear, Dr. Baker wanted to provide a demand for broiler/fryer size chickens, which are younger, because stores mostly sold larger roasters. The farmer spends more money to grow the chicken much larger, so this made a big difference in farmer's incomes, to have a market for smaller bbq size chickens. It caught on, and now we all bbq Cornell's recipe, on the grill using smaller, younger birds. Our parents would have roasted and baked larger birds and never bought small ones. You can reduce the salt in the marinade if you have blood pressure issues, and it still tastes delicious.
