Chicken brine time?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

I just picked up a four pound chicken and am hoping to smoke it tomorrow.  I have never done a full chicken in the smoker and I have also never brined.  From what I have read there is no going back after trying a brined chicken.  I wrote down Slaughterhouse Poultry Brine  and thought I would give that one a try as It looks like a few people have really enjoyed it.  My question is how long shoudl this chicken brine for?

A whole chicken 10 hours.

  • Chicken Parts 1 ½ hours
