Rooftop Revelry and Patio Patriotism

Summer hit DC at least a month early, and now the city is in High Festival season – punctuated by Fourth of July celebrations.

Best BBQ Chicken

One of the things that makes this BBQ chicken recipe the arrogant title is the fact I encourage you to use your favorite bbq sauce as well as your favorite beer. The only necessity is that you use chicken leg quarters featuring the fatty dark meat of the bird.
