Bubba Qs BBQ Chicken

We learned a new trick from Bubba Qs for their BBQ Chicken recipe - rolling the chicken in apple cider vinegar and seasoning with both salt AND (a pinch of) sugar before placing on the grill. The results are outstanding! The vinegar adds an amazing depth to the chicken, while the sugar helps to lock in the natural flavor of the chicken while on the grill. Oh yea, and smuthering it all in Bubba Qs Original Recipe BBQ Sauce doesn't hurt either 😜

We recently learned of brining chicken in pickle brine from Chef Richard DeShantz of the Richard DeShantz Restaurant Group in Pittsburgh. The flavor imbued from this technique provides a rich and layered profile to the finished product that we thought it would be perfect for chicken wings - we were right! Utilizing McClures Spicy Pickles, we brined the chicken in the pickle brine and chopped up the pickle spears for the blue cheese remoulade. Spicy, salty, creamy and cheesy, these chicken wing are layered with flavor. Artisan Ingredient Used: McClure's Spicy Pickle Spears.
