Here are a few shots of my first chicken I did a few days ago!
I brined the chicken for ten hours then rinsed twice. Then I drank half the beer and added two tsp. of Jeff's rub to the can.
Then I rubbed the bird down with EVO and another two tsp. of Jeff's rub. I also stuck a few small cubes of butter under the skin you can kind of see it under the skin around the neck. Then put it in the MES with my AMAZN smoker filled with Maple. I only lit one side for a light smoke. And had the MES set to 250.
A couple shots after three hours!!
And a little bear view!!! Just look at how juicy that is!!
A final shot of the breast!! You can see how juicy it was from the moisture on the knife!
I was blown away by how good this chicken was. Honestly it was the best chicken I have ever tasted! I have never tried a brined chicken and it makes by far the most moist bird you can imagine!! I don't think I will ever cook a chicken with out brining it first. My imagination is already running wild with different flavor combinations! I also have a turkey in the freezer I am going to have to try soon!!!!!!
Thanks for looking!
