Had a nice and easy smoke this weekend with a couple of yard birds to make my first smoked club sandwiches. Here was my process (feel free to point out things I could of done better);
Brined two 4 lbs birds for about 18 hours using the following;
- 1 Gallon Water
- 1 Cup Kosher Salt
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 8 Sprigs Fresh Thyme
- 8 Sprigs Fresh Rosemary
- 8 Sprigs Fresh Parsley
- 15 Cloves of Garlic
- 1 Onion (Diced)
- 2 tbsp Coarse Black Pepper
- 2 Lemons (Quartered)
Then I butterflied them, spreaded mayonnaise over them and sprinkled on some of Jeff's rub;
Smoked them with part Apple and part Hickory at 235F and spritzed with a mix of (Apple Juice, Water, Whiskey, and Apple Cider Vinegar) every 30 minutes.
Finally pulled them off at an IT of 165F;
Turned out incredibly moist. Got all my other ingredients out to make the Clubs.....and voila!
I can honestly say this was by far the best club sandwiches that I have ever had! Family loved them!
An easy smoke, but very tasty :)
