Chicken Barbecue and the Eastern Shore by Helen Chappell

Wherever you go on the Shore, you will find someone, somewhere, barbecuing chicken. It could be my personal favorite ~ St. Luke’s Methodist Men on Rt. 33, raising money for the church.

Whoever and whatever, I’m in! I can’t resist barbecued chicken. Maybe it’s that crispy, forbid-

You have to get there early. This stand, which has been written up in the Washington Post and praised by no less a barbecue maven than Dan
