Brine recipeOK so it's been a bit longer than a day since I said I would post this.... Sorry.
Here is the recipe:
2 C Seafood Stock or Broth (I was lazy and used Chicken Stock)
1 C Honey (Clover Suggested)
1/2 C White Wine, Dry
1 TB Peanut Oil
1 TB Kosher Salt
1 tsp Stone Ground Mustard
2 tsp Thyme, dried and ground
Combine ingredients and bring to a boil. Let cool and then brine between 2-4 hours (I marinaded for 4).
I used tails and claws, split the tails, crack the claws. I smoked in the shell. took roughly 4 hours at 225. Used a mix of maple and oak. Came out awesome!
