This should be fun.. I brined a 4.5 lb chicken in :
1 gallon of water
1 Tbs spoon of DQ cure.. Pink #1
5 Thyme sprigs
1 tsp of poultry seasoning
4 Smashed garlic cloves
Bunch of parsley stems
1 tsp cracked black
1 C mixed sugar brown/cane
1/2 C of Kosher salt

Injected Bird in a few places that were thickest with that mixed brine liquid.
Sat in fridge 15 to 18 hours in the liquids.

I did the beans soaked overnight.
1/4 C molasses
1/2 C brown sugar
1tsp kosher salt
2 tsp powder mustard
1/2 C ketchup
1 tsp cracked black
1 lb beans (great northern) this time
1 C diced onion
3 jalapeno peppers diced no seeds
1 C smoked buckboard bacon chopped and crispy cooked.

The chicken will be rinsed and coated with butter and a bit of poultry seasoning along with cracked black. Probably garlic powder and smoked paprika on the skin.
Smoked with a few Apple chunks till 165 in breast meat or just over 165 in the thigh meat..

Time to take the lid off my beans and let them cook topless a couple hours. CHICKEN going on in a few.
Stuffed with onion, celery, garlic and spices..
Not much salt used.. it sat in brine.

That is how I will heat it later. Smoke from chicken will infuse beans and chicken will stay juicy.. :rolleyes:

Sure didn't need long for the chicken to be so juicy. I would say more than a day and a half it would be too long for chicken. It's just for the flavor your doing it. The texture gets soft if you go to long. Gets a bit mushy maybe .. never tried a turkey.. :)
