US Airways' inflight magazine, Attache, has a great article about Barberton (OH) chicken in the March issue. It's available online (link below), but it's a dynamic link so it might disappear. If it does, just go to www.attachemag.com and find the link.
The author, a self-described "son of the South", confesses that "...reality, as perceived by connoisseurs of fried chicken, has always been that the crust is crispier, the breasts juicier, south of the Mason and Dixon divide. Until I made the trek to Barberton and ate my fill, I was a true believer of the Southern Realist School."
Barberton changed his mind.
