It's been awhile since my last post.....working too much! Brined a couple chickens today. Brined them for 5 hours and they turned out great, moist and tasty. Crispy skin....mmm mmmm good. Here's the brine I used. 1 gallon water 1 cup kosher salt 1/4 cup molasses 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp onion powder 1 tsp rosemary Rubbed them with Brinkmanâ€™s smokehouse fried turkey seasoning rub. click on thumbnail.
