Awesome Grilled Chicken - Bama Style

Submitted by Terey Gurr at the Tank Swap Taxi Facebook Page

Being a 'bama boy, I had this when I was stationed there and LOVE it! It's been made more famous thanks to Bobby Flay and the Food Network, when they featured Big Bob Gibson's restaurant in Decatur, AL.

1 quart mayonnaise
3/4 quart apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup corn syrup
1/4 tablespoon cayenne pepper
Prepared horseradish (to taste)
Lemon juice (to taste)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. (It may be necessary to do this in 2 batches; just add 1/2 of each ingredient and then repeat.) Blend for 1 minute, or until thoroughly combined and mixture is smooth. Pour sauce into a large bowl.

Use when grilling chicken; brush lightly over the chicken during the last few minutes of grilling. This sauce is also great for dipping; set some sauce aside for passing at the table.

John Henry's Rub Seasonings:

Pecan Rub
Nedra D's Hickory
Honey Lemon Pepper

4 6-oz. center cut pork chops (3/4" thick)
3 Tbsp. Pecan Rub Seasoning
1 Tbsp. Nedra D's Hickory Seasoning
Season to Taste

Directions:  Marinate overnight or no less than 4 hours before cooking.  These are wonderful smoked or grilled.  John Henry's philosophy is to always heat up the grill to high before grilling or smoking and place foods that cook quickly near the firebox (high-heat area) when smoking.  These chops will cook in 10-12 minutes on medium heat and 4-5 minutes on high heat on your grill.  Cook until you see a golden brown texture that you desire.  Smoking will require a little longer

8 oz. ground chuck, ground round, ground turkey or lamb

Mojave Garlic Pepper

Directions:  Rub seasonings should be mixed in with meat thoroughly.  Marinate for 2 hours in refrigerator until ready to grill or barbecue.  Sear on each side and place on tack rack away from direct heat.  Save a pinch of seasoning to top off each serving.  A 4 oz. serving should cook in 6-8 minutes, 3-4 minutes on each side.

SECRET:  Once the patty if formed, insert your index finger through the center leaving a hole.  RESULTS:  This will prevent the patty from forming a ball and a raw center.  The shrinking sill be from the inside out, thereby leaving a burger that will cover the entire bun!

You may ask yourself "What is Only Tank Syndrome (OTS)?"  OTS is a condition of having only one propane tank with no safety net.  OTS has been known to leave many people feeling fits of frustration and guilt - often asking themselves "How did I get in this condition?" 

We have been working on a cure for Only Tank Syndrome at the TankSwapTaxi.com Institute for Grilling Sciences (TIGS).  "It is a rather easy condition to cure" said TIGS Chairman Shane Sheffield.  What is this magic cure you ask?  The Back-up Tank.  Tank Swap Taxi takes OTS so seriously that we price our Back-Up Tanks at a far lower price than our competitors -- usually on average $10-15 cheaper - plus we deliver the full bottle to your house for FREE saving you more time, money, energy and frustration!

How do you use your back-up tank?  Well, it is really simple.  Just store your back-up tank in a location that will be accessible when -- not if -- you run out of gas in your current tank.  When that tank runs out of gas, simply disconnect this empty tank from your grill and hook up your TankSwapTaxi.com Back-up Tank.  Resume grilling and pat yourself on the back for being Smart!  For being Prepared!

One last step -- and it is very important!  Immediately call TankSwapTaxi.com or go online to swap-out your empty tank.  You will have completed the cycle and will have your new Back-Up Tank on deck.

Now you are cured of Only Tank Syndrome, once and for all!  Spread the word and don't let Only Tank Syndrome affect the ones you love!
