“Best Flippin’ Grilled Chicken”

My mother-in-law was in town last month and we wanted to get as much use out of our grill as possible during her visit (since she so generously bought it for us!).  I found this “best flippin’ grilled chicken from Reel Flavor (they’re title for it, not mine).  I was expecting, given the name, the BEST grilled chicken.  The verdict?  I was honestly a bit disappointed.  It was good, sure, but far from the best.  I didn’t really make any adjustments, but it just wasn’t the very best.  I think if it was just titled “grilled chicken” then it would not have been disappointing.

It kind of reminds me when I saw The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy several years ago.  I was told that it was literally the best movie ever.  Sure, it was good, but the best?  No.  (If you *did* think Hitchhiker is the best, I apologize for offending you, hehe).
