Simply Grilled Chicken

Perfect freedom is as necessary to the health and vigor of commerce as it is to the health and vigor of citizenship.  ~Patrick Henry

The 4th of July officially kicks off backyard barbecue season. Friends and family gather to feast, make fellowship and catch up on life. The barbecue pit is the place where stories are told, libations are shared and great food is prepared. Grab a brew and enjoy your friends!

Tips

Keep it convenient

Fill a few galvanized buckets with ice, great brew and place strategically around the back patio or deck, barbecue pit and tables. Keeping it simple and providing self-serve convenience is the perfect solution to you enjoying your guests and not slaving away in the kitchen or behind the bar.

Don’t be afraid to delegate! 

You’ve invited friends and family and while you may have had good intentions to prepare everything and serve your guests in grand style, sometimes life takes over and time runs out. Look at your menu and be realistic about which items can be prepared before guests arrive, then pick up the phone or send a couple of quick texts out.  You will find your friends and fam are more than happy to participate and share their cooking talents.

This is a simple recipe and the spice mixture can be tweaked to suit anyone’s flavor.
