Hello , bbqmstr1 . Yes , 26hrs. is plenty. If I Brine , I only do it for 8 - 10 hrs. .

 

The extra ingredients you added sounds good , Be sure  to post your Q-view.

 

I'll sit with some Coffee.gif and watch. . .

 

Later . . .

that sounds like a great brine.... with that said... thinking you should of put the same amount of sugar as you did salt... that helps offset the saltiness.... waiting to hear the results...
