Interested in making the Best Fried Chicken Ever? You'd start with a brine, perhaps the one Thomas Keller
uses, which has lemon, honey, herbs and peppercorns. Harlem's master chicken fryer Charles Gabriel
prefers a dry brine and the legendary Edna Lewis
would have you brine the chicken a second time in buttermilk. [more inside]

Long Wait for a Taste of Home: Guatemalan Fried Chicken Draws a Crowd.
Pollo Campero's first US store in Los Angeles reached the unprecedented sales mark of $1 million in an astounding seven weeks, a daily average of $20.4 thousand. After a full weekend of operation in the Washington DC market, Pollo Campero
broke this record by selling $65 thousand in two days, a daily average of $32.5 thousand. At the franchise in Herndon (Virginia), I have personally seen the line exit the store, cross the front of the building and circle around to the back (at 3pm). Is this fried chicken really that good?
