Jack Daniels Tennessee Whiskey Chicken

2 frying chickens (2 lbs each)
1 cup Jack Daniel s bourbon whiskey
salt & pepper to taste

-----whiskey sauce-----

1 pound white mushrooms -- sliced
6 green onions , chopped
2 tablespoon butter
2 ounces Jack Daniel s bourbon whiskey
2 cups brown sauce

Have the butcher split two small fryers or if you prefer, buy cut-up chicken pieces. Place the chicken in a shallow pan and douse with whiskey.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over the pieces; marinate for 2 hours. Soak some wood chips (they specify Jack

Daniel's Barrel chips) in water--if you're using regular wood chips, I'd suggest soaking them in whiskey?
While the chips are soaking, build a charcoal fire in your grill. Use the wood chips in your grill to create a good smoking fire. Grill the fryers over the pit until well cooked. Serve with whiskey sauce.

FOR WHISKEY SAUCE: Sauté‚ the mushrooms and green onion in butter until tender. Add whiskey and brown sauce and simmer until flavors have blended and the alcohol has evaporated. Keep warm until serving time.
BROWN SAUCE - To make Brown Sauce; thicken beef bouillon with cornstarch or roux. Or better yet, make it from scratch.
