TO BRINE OR NOT TO BRINE

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

I'm doing BEER CAN CHICKEN for the first time on my SMOKING IT ELECTRIC SMOKER. I've heard both views on whether or not to brine. I would love some opinions.

I brine mine as I do not seem to get  a lot of flavor from the beer can.  I have also injected.

If you have the time do the brine! :biggrin:

Chose one and do it this time and the next day attempt it the other way. You'll learn how to maximize the need for smoking. LOL

 

 I usually recommend the easiest first, then try the brine. No amount of brining can help a plain chicken that has been smoked badly. Learn how to do a nekkid chicken so that its delicious, then try the brine.

 

Try both, then make up your own mind.

 

Hey, you asked.

Not for beer can chicken. The steam will be enough. IMO. Otherwise, always brine!
