OK its been 60 hours in the brine, next the cutting board and "The Leaping Frog" cut(s)!!  Many THANKS to 'Hoser' Dave and his post on




I found some spices at Wally World --"Recipe Inspirations", it contains 4 different spices, but I only used the Garlic and Rosemary.  I mixed the spices with boiling water and Butter.  I made two different spice combinations for injection.


                #1   2 tsp  Minced Garlic  (in hind sight should have used Powdered Garlic,kept plugging the needle)

                       1 tsp Sage

                       4 Tbs  Butter

                       1 Tbs  Lemon Juice


                 #2  3 tsp  Crushed Rosemary

                       1 tsp  Thyme

                       4 Tbs  Butter

                       1 Tbs  Lemon Juice

I love the cut job...I have been doing my Thanksgiving Turkey that way for years...I can put the Legs in for an hour then add the Breast and Roast or Smoke until the Breast hits 165*...The Legs are always perfect, between 175-180*F and the whole bird comes out together...JJ

Lots of smoke, I've got a friend who has a sawmill, so I can get LOTS of Mesquite chips and dust!
