Tried my first bird in brine yesterday . Thanks chief Jimmy j for you recipe for brine i used that and added fresh garlic poultry seasoning and honey. The first picture is of it coming out of its 25 hour bath and all wiped dry lol. This one it has had its blow dry by the hair dryer worked awesome by the way and all seasoned up. This is the finished product and may i say it was the best bird i and my wife have ever eaten. I used a computation blend pellet for the mes cooked it at 325 for 1 1/2 hours in side temp 165. And the bird was very crispy Not sure yet why my pictures are not showing up had this problem before?????. Well i hope you enjoyed my bird as much as we did. I will never cook another one without my brine again. Thanks to chef for the great start.
