    I must give part of the credit for this dish to Gypsyseagod, he threw it up as a thought, and I grabbed it an ran with it.
    I took a whole chicken and cut it into (8) parts and brined it in a pre-mixed shrimp & crab boil and sea salt. I then let them sit in the fridge overnight. Once I took them out of the fridge, I seasoned with just salt and pepper. I wanted to do a control taste test, so I kept it simple. Remember, I don’t have the luxury of smoking at this time, so I put them in a preheated O***N at 350º for 35 minutes. I then removed all of the chicken parts and finished them off on the grill. Results were as follows:
    Straight-up brined chick parts did take on the shrimp and crab boil flavoring, but not in an over powering way. The combined taste of the chicken and this brine makes for a compatible pairing. I will use it again
