Hey all, decided it was time to cure some chicken ! I was intending to do some quarters but the wife found a great deal on a whole chicken, so I'll do quarters next go round ! So I helped my son mix up a batch of Pop's brine (thanks again for your brine recipe Pop's) & it was his job to stir it together... He done a great job ! Thumbs Up Brine all mixed up & time to get the bird in so it can do its thing ! Put in beer fridge for 4 days ! Simmered the other parts in a small pot for some stock ! Forgot pics of that part though ! Pulled it outta the fridge 4 days later (Saturday) & was planning on letting it sit overnight & cook Sunday... But that didn't happen ! Had some stuff come up ! That's how most my plans go... LOL. So, the bird sat in the fridge til Wednesday nite ! Finally, gonna cook us some cured chicken ! Thumbs Up So got the poultry shears out & spatched it real quick ! Fired up the kettle for an indirect/direct cook with some KBB & a small chunk of kiawe ! Waited til IT of 160*, then seared over the vortex. After the sear & rest, had an IT of 165* ! Thumbs Up Carved it ! Plated up with some mac salad & pork n beans ! It was a great meal & reminded us we need to do birds like this more often ! Thanks for lookin all !
