The First Mennonite Chicken BBQ Of The Year

As the title says we held our first Chicken BBQ of the year last weekend at church. BBQ's are one of the main fundraisers that the local church has; they learned them, along with the recipe for the marinade from the Mennonite Missionaries that came here 40 and 50 years ago and it's become something of a sacred institution. We began our day at 5 am sharp and didn't quit till noon. I went home and slept.
