Thanks bud. Give it a try it's mighty tasty
Do you save your pickle juice? We don't eat enough pickles to make a brine it would take us 5 yrs of saving the juice. LOL I bet I could go too In-N-Out Burger and ask them to save me a few gallons of pickle juice they get their pickles in green 6 gallon buckets. I have them save me buckets for the duck & goose blind and dove hunting seats. I'll just ask them to save me some juice because the brine sounds really great.

Tomahawks look incredible. Question: The pickle juice is it homemade or was it store bought? If homemade, what was your recipe?

Yes Dan we just save ours. I buy a big Jug of these from sam's once a month. It's alot of juice when you finish them off then I just drop the chicken right in the tub

You can also just make you up a fast dill pickle brine if you've ever made homemade pickles or buy a packet of dill brine that you just add water to. They are found on the isle with the canning supplies and can't get much easier

Everything looks great Jake! Those tomahawks from CPB are legit! I still have one in the deep freeze from Robert.

I gotta try that pickle juice brine too. I think there’s a jar in the fridge with like one pickle left, so it will be done soon.
