    so ive been smoking some breasts lately and have been putting them in brine..however my wife doesnt like the smell of brine and consequently when i make a brine the whole house smells like brine..so its out with the old techniques and in with something different..this will be my first time injecting anything ive smoked or cooked at all for that matter...i just threw a mixture together and am hoping the results turn out well..so here are some qviews..enjoy

    Interesting that the Mrs' likes the Taste of the Brined Bird but not the Smell...

    Injecting is a viable option...But...It makes it Critical that you get the Internal Temp over 140*F in 4 hours...Poultry can carry some nasty Bacteria an injecting pushes it from the outside in...JJ

    THAT looks delicious. Good job, and got me thinking to give injecting my turkey a try as well. Looks like you've got some excellent eating getting ready to disappear!

    Looking good! Just did an injected turkey smoke yesterday and for me that's the only way to go.
