Tried my first ever attempt at brining. Seen a recipe posted by q3131a so thought id give it a try.Only had a split chicken so mixed all the ingredients and soaked for12 hrs. Rinsed and dried sprinkled a little rub and stuck on the smoker. Using hickory wood. smoked until temp was 165* . Was very tender and juicy. I got one little piece the grandkids ate it ALL. I will be brining my chickens from now on. My wife says it was the prettiest and tastiiest chicken she ever ate.Said it was real good with Jeffs Carolina mustard sauce.
