I brined them for 1 hour 1/2 cup sea salt, 1/2 cup brown sugar. I think I lost a pic of the marinade. I used Yoshidas marinade from Sam's, rubbed some brown sugar, lemon pepper, sea salt. Into the smoker @ 240' and they are about 2 hours into it. can't seem to get the pics to post. I have been having puter problems I will keep trying. They are now at 165". Hopefully pics will follow, very frustrating. Pulled at 170' and here they are. Yumo, I tried the skin which I dont usually eat. I finally got it. I was going to put on some finishing sauce and throw them on the griil, NOT, they turned out perfect the way they are. I'm a happy Camper!
