“Here in Northern Indiana, they have fund raisers where this chicken is sold. It is slow cooked in a large covered grill (about the size of a small travel trailer) where it is constantly moving from the grilling section to a dipping section and back. This makes it fall-apart tender and a spectacular flavor. Edited to add: Since the sauce makes a lot and I end up throwing so much of it away, I've been making up LOTS of chicken for freezing. I have been taking 2 or 3 whole chickens, cutting them in half; then baking the halves in the sauce (may need to bake in batches). When cool, I freeze in freezer bags dividing up the remaining sauce among the bags. When ready to eat, thaw and grill with the thawed marinade.”
