    That's right. I'm smokin' chicken. It's in the brine now.


    A touch of salt, pepper, garlic, onion, sugar....and water.......

    I decided to offer these birds some companions. As the evening goes on, I'll be takin' those little friends back, one at a time. Anyone care for a cold one?

    Have a great weekend all! [​IMG][​IMG]
  2. I have a couple chix in the beer fridge as well sitting in some brine. I wish us both success tomorrow!
  3. One thing I meant to ask about your brine. I noticed you are using a metal pot. I have always heard to not use a metallic container. I'm not sure the reason. Have you ever noticed anything different?

    Lee, this container is stainless steel. It's never been a problem in the past. I don't leave it in there long. Maybe 3 hours.

    I like your fridge! Liquid love and smoking meat! How did the yogurt get in there?


    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    I noticed it too and thought, well that Activa stuff is supposed to get the pipes moving again. Probably a good thing to have on hand when you ate too much the night before!

    And here is a pic of my work/play area for the afternoon. Cold beer, nice breeze, sunshine, and smoke in the air. Life is good!

    Nice chicken!

    You need to use a non reactive pot, not aluminum, tin or copper. Stainless is good for just about anything!
