    It's cured. Now that's out of the way. I cured a bird in pops brine in the Briner Jr.





    Soaked for 4 days.

    Seasoned with some Jamaica chicken seasoning and on the rotisserie over oak.



    Bout half way done.



    High heat cured chicken.







    Yes it was fully cooked.

    Nice. I like smoked and cured poultry. The Cure making the Leg Quarters Pink, is the exact reason I never make cured chicken for company. To much time explaining, it is supposed to be that way and why...JJ

    I still have to explain it to the wife. She said " it's not done". Lol. I said it's cured. Then she liked it.

    Nice chicken Adam!  "Points"  I am a new fan to cured poultry myself.  I didn't even think of having to explain the color to my guests.

    That's when I say "OK. I'll eat it. Nice knowing you, I'll be dead in a few days." 

    Same goes for "my bacon is raw" after it's been in blistering hot oil for ten minutes..

    Looks great! I've brined birds overnight, but never cured. Yours sure turned nice and moist. I just might have to give this a try.

     Points for the inspiration! Thanks, David.

    Huh, never saw that briner before...neat tool. The cured bird I've done before, except not whole, just pieces...either way, the cured flavor and texture...mmm...it's good eats. Yours looks scrumptious!!!

    It's been way too long since my last round, though...can't remember when, so yeah, too long...I do have a few bags of TQ tucked away in my stash, soooo...

    Thanks for sharing!!!

    Thanks. I have the Jr sized, love it. I am going to get the big one soon




    Thanks Eric. I went 4 days on this one. The wife didn't like the texture. I also didn't dry in the fridge for 2 days either.


    Thanks Case. Yea but the cooks at Disney are pro's. Everyone trusts them. Lol


    Thanks Gary. I would never do cured chicken for a crowd of people.

    Thanks Bear. At least people know under cooked chicken is very bad. In my opinion it's the worst meat to under cook.
