Smoke a couple chickens yesterday (w/Q-view)

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I used a variation on one of the brines someone else had posted and smoked them for about 6 hours yesterday. Yumm!!
Here's what I used:
1.5 gallons water
1 cup Kosher Salt
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1/2 cup soy sauce
and a few shakes of minced onion, since I didn't have any onion powder!
Soaked them for about 12 hours and smoked them with apple and a little hickory for about 6 hrs. until at 185.

I have to admit I've never brined a chicken before, so I can't say if this is better or worse than any other recipe, but it went over well!
Feel free to try it out.
post #2 of 8 long as you and they like it, eh? Lotta sugar in the brine. But that's MY call. I am a sugar minimalist LOL!

Where's the onion, rosemary, thyme, parsley? Make that brine WORK!

On edit..I missed the onion fine. Also consider a semi-sweet white wine. I use dry of course, but you could sub that for some of the sugar.
