    Curing a chicken in Pops brine always looked good to me as well.

    I always wondered if it makes the chicken taste "hammy"

    I've done a turkey and I believe a chicken or two in Pops brine. Yes, the dark meat will have a "hammy" texture. It still tastes like chicken, it's just different. I happen to really like it. The white meat gets less "hammy", really just stays incredibly moist with a slightly firmer texture. Sort of like deli chicken.

    Cooked pics.









    I wouldn't say it tasted like ham but it did have a different flavor.

    We enjoyed it.

    I think it tastes more Hammy when you get a good amount of Smoke on it.

  11. That brine bucket thing is AWESOME!!! I need one!! Also I am intrigued by by your rotisserie set-up in what looks like a drum smoker!! How did you do that?

    Chicken looks great by the way!
