I have sworn by JJ’s finishing sauce and have encouraged others to try it. I’ve used a lot of his recipes he’s posted and all have been great. Last night I started reading through some of his old posts and came across his “pit chicken” aka roadside chicken. I knew I had to try it. So I followed his detailed instructions that he was always great at providing and gave it a shot. I won’t explain it all as he did perfectly for anyone interested the link below explains it. But thanks again chef Jimmyj miss you!

Here’s the pics. Doesn’t look as good as his but he is a pro.
