1/2 cup vegetable oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 medium onion, minced
1 teaspoon hot sauce
or cracked peppercorns
Makes about 2-1/2 cups, enough for 2 pounds of meat.
Whisk all the ingredients together.
Combine this with chicken or beef in a gallon-size bag (add more Dr. Pepper to cover if necessary) and refrigerate at least 3 hours or overnight. Once you have the meat on the grill, boil the marinade for 5 minutes to thicken and use for basting.
