Chef Ron Spada's White BBQ Chicken Recipe Featured in Home Design and Decor Magazine #LocalLove Newsletter

Chef Ron Spada's White BBQ recipe was featured in Home Design & Decor Magazine's #LocalLove newsletter. He shared with the magazine:
"I have very fond summer memories of getting white BBQ chicken from a stand on the side of the road with my dad and relish all the years of back porch grilling with him. This White BBQ Chicken recipe originated from my father’s chicken marinade, his adaptation Cornell BBQ sauce - eggs, oil, vinegar, spices. My dad added ketchup and horseradish. It was simple, but so good. When I discovered other parts of the country’s “white BBQ sauce,” made a mayonnaise base (usually Duke’s or Hellman’s Mayonnaise), which brings in the eggs, oil, vinegar and spices, it was a “lights on” moment that inspired my recipe."
-Owner and Executive Chef, Ron Spada
White BBQ Chicken Recipe:
5 cups Duke’s mayonnaise
2 cups cider vinegar
2 tablespoons poultry seasoning
1 tablespoon Granulated Garlic
½ tablespoon granulated onion
1 ½ tablespoons black pepper
2 ½ tablespoons horseradish
¼ cup ketchup
2 tablespoons kosher salt
1 cup canola oil

Mix all ingredients together until smooth and marinate chicken (Pork is excellent as well with this recipe) for 24 hours and grill over medium flame until cooked through. Baste meat with marinade.
