    I have the bird in some brine right now went with a modified version of the slaughterhouse.  I didn't have a cajun spice or celery salt so I improvised.  I but the bird in the brine at 8pm  and will pull it out about 10am

    Slaughterhouse Brine:

    1 1/2 Gal Water
    1/2 C Salt
    1/2 C Dark Brown Sugar
    2 tsp Garlic Powder
    2 tsp Onion Powder
    2 tsp Cajun Spice       (Used pollo asada rub)
    2 tsp Celery Salt        (Used cayenne pepper)

    Gonna go to the store in the morning for apple cider and gonna inject the bird.

    Slaughterhouse Injection:

    1/2 Pkg Good Seasons Italian Dressing
    2 tsp Garlic Powder
    2 tsp Celery seed
    2 TBS melted Butter
    2 C Apple Cider

    Slaughterhouse Spritz:

    8 oz Apple Cider
    6 oz Water
    4 oz Whiskey
    2 oz Cider Vinegar

    I hope to get a better result this time.  I've been doing lots of reading since im stuck at home with my fractured fibula.  My first smoke was a disaster.  OH I almost forgot I will be using Orange wood.  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

    I was gonna try Billbo's world famous rub too.  Is this over doing it?  I didn't care fore Jeff's rub so I wanna try something else.

    1/2 cup paprika
    1/2 cup kosher salt
    1/2 cup light brown sugar
    1/2 cup granulated garlic
    6 tablespoons granulated onion
    1/4 cup chili powder
    1 tablespoon fresh ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon cumin
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper

    I have a question about the Italian dressing. Do you make the dressing or just use the seasoning from the package? I made the dressing and then thought about that. So I'm on hold till I find out. Thanks
