Well, after some reading I'm going to try my fisrt roast with my cooker. Until I get my skills together here I thought I'd try something simple like chicken. I picked up a Charbroil Smokin Pro to get started with so this is what I'll be using for a while. I threw together a brine for a 10 hour soak and the chicken is sitting in my fridge brining as I post this. The brine recipe I used is as follows: 1 Â½ gallons of distilled water 1 Â½ cups Morton Kosher Salt 1 Â½ cup Brown sugar 1 cup Chardonnay Â½ can Orange Juice (concentrate) Â½ can Lemonade (concentrate) Â¼ cup Soy Sauce 1 tsp. Cayenne Pepper 1 tsp. Garlic Powder 1 tsp. Onion Powder 1 tsp. Celery Seed I''l get this smoker modified and cured out tonight then when it's ready I'll farr it up and post the ongoings and results.
