Has anyone done both? If so how did it come out? If I decide to do both I plan on lowering the salt content on the brine, so it doesn't overwhelm everything. Any other suggestions? I'll copy both recipes below.
My thought is the saltiness of the brine and sweetness of the injection will balance out and be pretty awesome.
3 Cups of Sugar
3 Cups of Salt
3 Gallons of Water
1 Gallon of Coffee
2 Cups of Teriyaki
4 Halved Lemons
2 or 3 Star Anise
Handful of crushed Black Peppercorn and Fresh Thyme
Dissolve salt, sugar and Fluids together. Add the rest of the ingredients and Brine 24-48 hours.
1 cup/240 mL beer (try a dark ale)
1/2 cup/120 mL honey
1/2 cup/120 mL apple cider
1 tablespoon/15 mL Cajun Seasoning
