So I helped my son mix up a batch of Pop's brine (thanks again for your brine recipe Pop's) & it was his job to stir it together... He done a great job !
Brine all mixed up & time to get the bird in so it can do its thing ! Put in beer fridge for 4 days !
Simmered the other parts in a small pot for some stock ! Forgot pics of that part though !
Pulled it outta the fridge 4 days later (Saturday) & was planning on letting it sit overnight & cook Sunday... But that didn't happen ! Had some stuff come up ! That's how most my plans go... LOL.
So, the bird sat in the fridge til Wednesday nite ! Finally, gonna cook us some cured chicken ! So got the poultry shears out & spatched it real quick !
Fired up the kettle for an indirect/direct cook with some KBB & a small chunk of kiawe !
Waited til IT of 160*, then seared over the vortex. After the sear & rest, had an IT of 165* !
Carved it !
Plated up with some mac salad & pork n beans ! It was a great meal & reminded us we need to do birds like this more often !
Thanks for lookin all !
