    OK,company came and bird 1 flew the coop but got this one before they got it...

    ...brined em for 6 hours and did a simple brown sugar and cinnamon rub with apple cider in the can for 1 and a lemon pepper rub with lemon juice in the can for the 2nd one.used cherry for the smoking and wow!
    For sure a fan of brining now!
    Thanx for looking and in the future will do a few pix on the farm.It was a working dairy up until 4 years ago now just hay.

    You said that you brined the chix first.. what exactly did you brine them in? Was it just a salt water solution or what? I have nver used the brining method , was just curious..

    I have used a really similar brine on chicken parts with great success, how ever, I never brine my birds simply cause we have been real happy with beercan style results, but tomorrow, I am gonna do 4 beerbuttbirds with your brine!!!



    Looks great:)

    Looks great MH. I'm going to try brining the bird next time. Just a suggestion for you, next time plug the hole on top of the bird with a potato, onion, jalapeno or something to keep the steam inside the bird.
