    I was smoking a turkey so I figured , why not throw on a chicken too!

    Brine (used for whole Turkey and whole Chicken at once in a large cooler)
    2 Gal Water
    2 Cups Kosher Salt
    2 Cups Sugar (1 Cup white + 1 Cup Brown)
    4 TBS Black Pepper
    1 TBS Dried Rosemary
    1 TBS Thyme

    RUB (enough for 20 lb turkey and whole chicken):
    1⁄4 cup brown sugar, packed
    2 tablespoons chili powder
    2 tablespoons paprika
    1 tablespoon cumin
    1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper (can use more)
    1 tablespoon garlic powder
    3 teaspoons mustard powder
    2 teaspoons salt
    2 teaspoons black pepper

    Brine chicken overnight

    add rub above and below skin

    add butter under skin

    cooked at 280 until breast reached 165, a little less than 3 hours
