I'm going camping at the beach this weekend, and was thinking of brining chicken in sea water just to see (sea?) what would happen. I know folks up in Maine cook lobsters in sea water, so I would think as long as the chicken was smoked to a safe temp it shouldn't be a health hazard. I suppose I could boil it first then chill it, but I'd be afraid that might alter the mineral content, thus killing any characteristic flavor it might impart. We eat fish that spend their whole lives in the ocean, and where I'm going isn't a polluted area nor are there any biological hazard warnings. Am I crazy?
