It has been almost three weeks since my last smoke and to top it off I have been having problems with a particular family mater I have vented about on here before.  So what is the easiest way to make things feel much better.  Yard-Bird!!

OK this is the Brine I use on BBQ chicken.  I like it because it gives the meat a sweet taste without bbq sauce. 

 

1 Gallon Water

1/3 cup kosher salt

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 TBS Tony Chachery's

1 tsp cumin

4 cloves of Garlic

2 bay leaves

Picked up my birds today. I got a question for u on starting this brine process. Should I poke these birds with a ice pick or just soak them untouched overnight?

Just soak them overnight untouched.  The salt water will be drawn into the chicken through Osmosis.  Science and cooking......
