Well I have done a lot of chicken so far in my smoking career and I have been a HUGE fan. Yet I have never done a brine. So I broke down and figured enough was enough I needed to try it. Brine: -1 gallon water -3/4 cup kosher salt -2/3 cup sugar -3/4 cup soy sauce -1 teaspoon each of dried tarragon, thyme, black pepper -1/4 cup olive oil I got the recipe from "3 men with nothing better to do" I soaked them for 10 hours and ready to roll Loaded in the smoker I will keep this updated over the few hours these breasts are in. I am really excited because of all the hype about brines but never having tried any myself, ever! Yes I know I have been gone for a long time but don'' worry I'm still alive.
