Kiwi lemon mint breasts....

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
These beauties are going on the ol' smoker tonight with me brisket...

First I let them swim for a day in a brine of:

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup kosher salt
1 package lemonade mix (non sugar)
1 1/2 cup Kiwi lemon mint vinegar
2 tbls lemon pepper
1 big stix

when they were done with their olympic trials..
I rinsed them and rubbed them under the skin and on top with:

1 tbl kosher salt
3 tbl lemon pepper
2 tbl tumeric

back into the fridge until later.

I don't know what to say except for what an awesome, interesting concoction of a brine ya got there!! This is when I wish we had virtual tasting available on the forum!!!

Looking forward to seeing how these turn out, I'm sure they will have a lovely lemony bite that is sure to tantalize those taste buds!!!

Big Stix - popcicle, cherry pinapple flavored..why? I was rushing on my brine and when I added it to the bucket I felt it was a little to warm so I tossed in a popcicle....it was a quick fix for my temp problem biggrin.gif

Here is the web site for the Kiwi Lemon Mint vinegar www.cgvinegars.com they are young couple who make artesian vinegars. I also just got one that is called "cherry kiss" it's made with cherries, oranges, vinegar sugar and chocolate mint...yum!

The chix came out wonderful, on a side note next time I think I would use less salt in the rub and perhaps actual mint leaves between the skin and breast while smoking...they are yummy, a subtle mint flavor with a nice citrus splash. I am going to use this for a chicken salad with raspberry vinegrette.......
Have a great week all!! Happy smokes!!

Here is my shameless plug....
Throwdown! Throwdown! don't forget about next weekend! biggrin.gif
