When Autumn arrives each year, we put everything that is remotely associated with summer weather away for the winter, including the grill. Come May, when the warm weather finally returns, it’s once again grilling time. Out comes the patio furniture, the umbrella, the garden “chochkes” and of course, THE GRILL. We are once again ready for summer!
I have been saving a jar of Bone Suckin’ Sauce, produced by Ford’s Gourmet Foods, for our first BBQ post of the season. I picked up a sample at the Fancy Food Show last year. It was worth waiting for! I decided to use it on chicken, and believe me, it tasted every bit as good as it looks in this picture! The recipe is so easy and the flavor screams BBQ. You can find the sauce at Whole Foods Markets, Stew Leonards, and specialty food stores. Or, you can order Bone Suckin’ products from their website. Anyway, here’s the recipe (I’m telling you, it is so easy!)

Makes 4 servings
3 pounds chicken parts
1 cup Bone Suckin’ Sauce
– Spray grill grate with non-stick cooking spray, then preheat grill to medium heat.
– Place chicken on grill and cook about 40 – 50 minutes, turning every 10 minutes, until juices run clear.
– During last 20 minutes of cooking, brush with Bone Suckin’ Sauce, turning frequently. (Total cooking time is 40-50 minutes).
– Serve with grilled corn on the cob. Soak the whole cobs in a pot of cold water for 15 minutes. Remove from water and pull the husks of the corn back without removing them. Remove and discard only the silk, keeping the husks attached. Brush corn with vegetable or olive oil, and sprinkle it with salt or a seasoned pepper. Wrap the husks back over the kernels and tie each ear with a piece of husk or twine. Place the corn on grill, rotating it occasionally to prevent it from getting charred too much on one side. After a couple of turns, place the corn on indirect heat and close the cover. The total cooking time should be about 15 minutes.
