Grilling - Vintage 1950's Barbecue Chicken Recipe

A few weeks ago I lugged over a box of recipes from my great aunties house. All of the recipes in this box are vintage ones that she cut out of magazines, booklets and newspapers many years ago. They are all yellowed, tattered and faded.

This particular recipe was paper clipped to a 1950's advertisement so I am assuming the recipe is also from the 1950's era.

Vintage Barbecued Chicken Recipe

3 broiler-fryer chickens, halved
2/3 cup salad oil
1/2 cup vinegar
1/3 cup catsup
2 tsp. salt
1/8 tsp. ground cayenne pepper

Yield: 1 1/2 cups or enough for 3 broiler-fryer chickens.

Place chicken, skin side up, on grate set for 6-12" from heat. Combine remaining ingredients. Brush chicken with barbecue sauce. Cook slowly until tender, turning and basting occasionally. Allow 1 to 1 1/4 hours total cooking time. To test for doneness, leg should twist easily out of the thigh joint & pieces should be fork tender.
