Uncle Dakota's BBQ Chicken/Ribs
From James Manning, Jr.
Chicken or ribs
Finely diced onions
Marinate or dry rub the meat and refrigerate overnight.
Prepare the smoker with hickory chips and allow to smoke for five minutes before adding meat. Rotate meat frequently to ensure even cooking.
The sauce starts with a base BBQ sauce. Add a little Tabasco sauce, brown sugar, finely diced onions, and a dash or two of your favorite beer. James Manning generally uses a nice, locally-produced IPA. Place on the stove and heat until bubbling, stir often, reduce heat, cover, and simmer.
Once the meat is cooked, remove from the grill, dip into the sauce, and return the sauce-covered meat back to the grill to lock in the smokey flavor. Do not let burn.
