‘Everyone agrees that barbecue is a distinctly North American delicacy,” wrote Steven Raichlen in The Barbecue! Bible. “More and more barbecue joints are serving chicken, a reflection of the general lightening up of the American diet.”Each person has his or her favorite way to prepare this perennially popular entrée. The chicken might be seasoned with a spice rub or soaked in a savory marinade before being grilled, or might be brushed with a thick barbecue sauce while it grills.
