    Here's the Brine ingredients ... modded Slauterhouse Brine... for Chickens We'll have tomorrow night. Then...............

    The G-Kids and Trish and I went to Sam's to check things out and got a pair of Big ole Hens to cook. On the way home we stopped in at Bass Pro to spend my gift cards .

    Well , I got three Fillet knives and had some credit left so I thought I'd try some different Rubs -



    Plowboys for the Chix first , and Friday I do some Butt with the Bone Suckin' Sauce Rub[​IMG]  

    I still had some on my card so I got some wire ties for my Mavericks , gonna be great for keeping them from tangling.



    Here's the Brine...


    and one of the Girls ready to get in the Spa for the night.

    and We also P/U a wedge of Jarlsburg to Smoke with my AMNPS[​IMG]  , just hope Trish stays out of it till it cures.[​IMG]


    should be some good eats for the week , hope I can wait the 2-3 weeks for the Cheese.

    I'm pulling my Lil Girl out for this one and most likely for the Butt too , (the Cheese I will do in the Big Smoker's Verticle , with no heat.) Though I'd take the Cheese and slice it into 1/3'ds to smoke ; I like a lot of that brown smoke layer they get[​IMG].

    I'll post as things happen.

    Have fun and...
  2. Congratulations on the new goodies!

    Since you showed only two of those fillet knives in the QView, am I safe in assuming that the third one is already in the mail to me?

    OK ,here's some more pics of the ongoing cook , first the cheese and AMNPS in action...[​IMG]

    and the Jarlsburg [​IMG].


    starting to get good color[​IMG].

    Now the Chickens


    they were so big I had to nestle them in the beginning , but as they lost some moisture they shrank down to fit real good[​IMG]. I placed them in the middle of the rack so I could manage the heat better ( she does an excellent job of staying at 225*f , I pushed her to get my 300*f temp. I wanted).

    Now let me go shoot the finished Bird , and get a chunk , I'm hungry [​IMG].


    Only showing one as Fil came and got one [​IMG].


    a shot of my plate , and yes, it's tender and juicy[​IMG]   .The flavor is all the way through the meat and juice is great , Pop's SH brine is a hit here.

    I was gonna do Beercan Birds , but the brids were too top heavy so I went with the easy route , laying on the grill [​IMG]  .

    Thanks for checking me out , have fun and...

    Ironhorse , my cheese has shrunk to 2 chunks and doing great . I intend to open them next Wed. the 16th .

    The third chunk dissapeared , I think the FIL got one when he got his Golf cart out of the garage ( he has a habit of turning my refridgerator in the Garage off , luckily he looked inside first and saw the Cheese and .....[​IMG]  ).

    have fun and ...
