New to smoking

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I just got an electric smoker and am going to do some chicken breasts. I brined them overnight in a mix of 4 cups water, 1/4 cup kosher salt and 1/4 cup brown sugar. There are 7 breasts, good sized. Is that too long in the brine?

I've done a lot of bringing and haven't had any issues with doing it over night. That is how I normally brine poultry before smoking.

Ok thanks. They turned out really good, weren't dry at all. I will probably brine poultry from now on also.

Sorry no pics. I will take some mext time. I covered them with a rub and wrapped them in bacon. About a half hour before pulling them I put barbecue sauce on them. Pulled at 165 I.T. and rested for about 30 minutes in foil.
