Making Fried Chicken for the first time

Hi All!
I'm attempting to make fried chicken this weekend. I am using a basic recipe where I soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk overnight and then dredge through flour and fry in Crisco. I would love to hear any suggestions, tricks of the trade, etc. on how to get the best results.
