Chicken breast augmentation - Qview

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I did a bunch of chicken this weekend. A whole bird, beer can style, and some thighs that I'll be saving for future devouring.

Anyway, I brined the whole chicken in the beer brine that had been posted a couple weeks back by HerkySprings...

Here is the brine, I put the chick and brine in a ziplock for about 24 hours...

Also brined 3 of the six thighs for comparison purposes, but didn't take any pics of them.

Out of the brine, I injected the bird with the following garlic infusion: 1/2 cup water, 1 tbsp. salt, 2 cloves of garlic pureed until near liquid, 1 1/2 tsp. Crystal hot sauce and the juice from one whole lemon.

I then set the bird on a can of beer and was getting ready to rub it down. Well, Mrs. Meatball, who is not a plastic surgeon or a comedian by trade, decided that this bird was too flat-chested, so we decided to augment its breasts with two lemon halves. I really think she just wanted to do it because she knows I put these pics on the website...LOL...Actually, I will always do this with my chickens from now on - it made a huge difference and the breast came out so juicy and tasty!!

Rubbed her down with some cajun type rub and into the smoker with the thighs...I set it directly into a pan that had some apple juice and half a lemon in it, so I could get the thighs on a rack above...

Later added a sweet onion that came out great with a slightly cooked piece of bacon, some montreal steak seasoning and butter...

Finished chick...

Dinner time...

Thanks for peeking at the surgical wonder...icon_lol.gif

Nice lookin' yardbird & thighs, Meatball. Very nice surgical work also. You should consider changing your zip code to 90210. BTW, in pic #4, that yardbird must be some kinda excited, her "high beams" are on icon_mrgreen.gif

Meatball, that's hilarious. Do you mind if I send that photo to my cuz who is a plastic surgeon. He'd get a kick out of it. Nice work Mrs. Meatball.

It looks like it might have been a bit chilly in your smoker.

Looks delicious. Good job!
