    I soak my chicken in Famous Dave's Spicy Pickle juice over night

    after an over night soaking I ground up some of my dried peppers from last year and made my rub, also with a little ground pepper, salt, garlic, dried mustard, onion powder, paprika, Italian seasonings, brown sugar

    patted dry, not rinsed, applied rub on and under the skin[​IMG]

    around two hours in MES with cherry wood, pull at 185, wrapped in foil and towels while rest of dinner was finishing up on stove top

    I'd say it was just about as perfect as any of my chicken has ever came out . .  the pickle juice adds a very unique flavor . . . give it a try some time

    all comments or additional tip are welcome..

    Great looking chicken [​IMG]

    I have tried a pickle juice injection on pork butts before but never on chicken. May have to give it a try.

    Thanks for the Qview

  5. Looks good and the pickle juice idea sounds like a nice twist.
