so my parents just bought me a smoker and i plan to do a cornish hen or chicken before i try a brisket or butt...however i try to limit my sodium intake as i have regular pvcs (pre ventrical contractions) which sometimes are affected by sodium as well as caffiene. therefore, is it okay to smoke a bord without brine? i understand it wil probably be more dry this way are there any tips for how to ensure the bird does not dry out? Thanks in advance!

Do a beer butt chicken . no need to brine . And if you can't have beer use orange or apple juice in the can. Look on the wikis for emans pig rub .it has no salt or salt substitute in it. For beef i cut the sugar down by 2/3s and add more garlic powder and onion powder.
