Title: Whole [or spatchcocked] chicken Brine Recipe
Post by: austinsmoke on July 17, 2018, 11:43:46 AM
Hi all,

Haven't been on the forums in a while [sold house, been in an apartment where I can't use my smoker].

I'm looking to smoke a couple of chickens [self-raised, non-injected].

With Susanminor site not working, can anyone provide a recipe for a brine that they like to use on chickens in the Bradley?

Planning to go with apple/mesquite mix of wood, with Jan's rub


Thanks!

Not a brine, but love to melt 2 sticks butter in with Mrs.Dash and inject into the bird then rub some on the outside and cook

Here is a simple and quick brine.

1 gallon cold water
1 cup pickling salt, or non-iodine table salt
1//2 cup sugar
6 large cloves of garlic, crushed
3 bay leaves, crumbled

Add  salt and sugar into a large stainless steel or plastic container. Stir until well dissolved. Stir in garlic, and bay leaves. Brine for 2 hours in a refrigerator.

This is a good standard brine.  I use similar.  I also like to add a 1/2 cup of soy sauce.
