    Got two young bird in . Got in yesterday about 3. Going to splatchcock. Freeze one. Does anybody put rub on after brine?. Thinking will add another burst of flavor. Like lots of flavors. More pics to come as we progress today. About 3:00 or so. Can you upload pics later in same photoset? How?

    I don't brine, but I would put a rub on if I did.

    I'm with Case on not brining.  One because I'm lazy. And secondly because most all of the whole chickens in my area are bagged and swimming in a solution already!

    But YES i like to rub them. I use  a little olive oil Tony Chachere creol seasoning and Cumin

    Bad pic. Fried green tomatoes. So much rain plants were small and needed to get them off.

    I'd say you did good on those chickens.  And don't worry about that last blurry photo.  I get a bit jittery myself around Fried Green Tomatoes too!  Yumm!

  8. Hi Dave, When I do chicken, I use Pops brine for 12 to 24 hours and then pull from the brine, rense  in cold water, dry with paper towels then I give them a hefty coating of Jeffs Rub all over, under as much skin as i can and then smoke them.

    I have had them actually squirt juice when I inserted my probe to check for Internal Temps.

    Brining and rubbing is the way my wife and I like our smoked chicken.

    I had some High mountain seasoning Maple brine for poultry I bought a few years back. 20 hrs about in brine. It was a killer. Rubbed down with homemade rub. My wife just could not get enough. Will never not brine again. Was going to freeze the 2nd bird but wife said no supper tomorrow night. Whatever.
