A little off topic, I got one of those el cheapo silicone basting brushed, cost something under 2 bucks at WalMart, you might even find them in the dollar store. Used it to apply the wing sauce to my drumsticks (hey it's still chicken) and it worked really well. I like the fact that these can be cleaned thoroughly, even in the dishwasher, mine has a high temp wash cycle that essentially sterilizes things. Great if you're apply bastes to raw poultry.
When it comes to beatin's, baby you deserve the best.
