Brined two 6 pounders in apple juice, water, Splenda brown sugar kosher salt, and sugar free syrup. Left them in for 6 hours then rinsed and patted dry.
Brushed with evoo and rubbed with Jeff's rub. Placed them each on a can of Dr Pepper and placed them over a water pan on a 275 degree Webber Kettle with apple chunks producing nice thin blue smoke.
2 hours later they were 173 in the breast, so I wrapped them in tin foil and let them rest in a cooler for an hour.
In the mean time, I combined equal parts sweet baby rays and dr pepper and simmered it on the stove.
Chicken was pulled and rubbed with the skin before I discarded it. BBQ sauce was added and the rest is history. Wife said it was the best chicken she ever had!
Thanks for viewing!
