Basic BBQ Chicken

Basic BBQ Chicken

1 1/2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
3 medium garlic cloves, finely chopped
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
3 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon celery salt
1/2 cup water

For the Chicken
3 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or bone-in, skin-on chicken pieces
2 tablespoons vegetable oil, plus more for coating the grill
kosher salt 
Freshly ground black pepper

1. Combine all of the ingredients in a small saucepan over high heat. Bring to a boil, stirring until completely incorporated. Reduce the heat to low and gently simmer until the flavors have mingled and the sauce has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 30 to 40 minutes.
2. Remove from the heat and let cool to room temperature. If not using right away, cover and refrigerate the barbecue sauce for up to 2 weeks 

For Chicken
1. Heat a gas or charcoal grill to medium (about 350 degrees to 450 degrees) and rub the grates with a bowl dripped in oil. Meanwhile, if you're using chicken breasts (either boneless or bone-in) cut them in half crosswise. Pat the chicken pieces dry with paper towels and place them on a baking sheet. Coat them on all sides with the measured oil, and season with salt and pepper. 
2. When the grill is ready, place the chicken on it (skin side down if using skin on), close the grill, and cook until grill marks appear on the bottom of the chicken pieces, about 5 minutes. Flip the chicken over, close the grill, and cook until grill marks appear on the second side, about 5 minutes more. 
3. Reserve 1 cup of the barbecue sauce in a separate bowl. Flip the chicken again and brush about a quarter of the remaining sauce on the chicken pieces. Close the grill and cook for 5 minutes. Flip and brush the chicken, and continue to flip and brush every 5 minutes, until an instant read thermometer inserted into the thickest piece reads 160 to 165 and the meat near the bone is no longer pink, about 10-15 minutes more (about 25 to 30 minutes total cooking time). Remove the chicken to a clean serving platter and serve immediately, passing the reserved bowl of barbecue sauce on the side

National Eye Glasses Day

Its National Sunglasses Day. Here is some history about Sunglasses. Did you know that in the prehistoric time Inult peoples wore flattened walrus ivory glasses to block harmful reflected rays of the sun? Also the Roman emperor Nero watched gladiator fights through polished gems. It wasn't until James Ayscough before experimenting with tinted lenses in spectacles around the 1752 that sunglasses took it shape.

Wearing sunglasses while being out down on a sunny day protects your eyes from harmful UV rays. So today shade up with your coolest shades and enjoy your day.

National Bomb Pop Day

Today is National Bomb Pop Day! I so remember these as a kid. My mom and dad used to buy these for me and my brothers and sisters. I loved them because as they melt there is different flavors. But oh what a mess! There are some many different flavors now to choose from. But now I have to watch my weight and watch what I eat so today I will be giving my kids a Bomb Pop and I will be mixing me a drink that tastes just like a bomb pop today.

Bomb Pop Shots

1/3 ounce sprite 
1/3 ounce lemon vodka
2/3 ounce blue curacao
2/3 ounce grenadine
*** Can use Mikes Hard Lemonade or Smirnoff Ice in place of these
Shot glasses 

1. Mix the sprite and vodka in a shaker with some ice to chill it.
2. Strain into glass
3. Using a spoon turned upside down angled into the vodka mix just to slightly break the surface, very slowly pour the blue curacao. It must be done with patience, or the two will mix and you wont get the same effect.
4. Next add in the grenadine. The easiest way to do this is to pour close to the edge of the glass to create an almost waterfall effect inside the glass. Since the grenadine is so thick it'll drop to the bottom of the glass

Enjoy and Drink Safely!
