I'm giving my first go round with smoking a chicken tomorrow and I was looking for a good brine mixture and curious what some use as a mop, or even if you do for that matter. I'm completely new to brining and I was planning on adding the Kosher salt and sugar but I wasnt sure what else (if anything) to add after that. I don't want to overkill the chicken but I was curious as to how much other ingredients some added. As far as a mop goes how often is something like this done? I've only smoked ribs so far and i've just been using an apple cider vinager and apple cider mix. Is this something I could still use? If so how often? And how often would you mop the chicken with anything else? I'm using a Brinkmann smoke n pit charcoal side smoker if that helps Thanks!
