After lots of researching online I combined various recipes and techniques. Here's the result. Very happy w how they turned out. Brined for 24 hrs in a basic brown sugar, kosher salt, filtered water, peppercorn, thyme mix. Rubbed the birds down w lots of EVO. Seasoned liberally w California style garlic salt blend, fresh cracked pepper. Then I stuffed the cavity w chopped apples, onions, garlic, lemon, lime cilantro. Smoked in a gas smoker at 225 using a 50/50 blend of apple chips and hickory chips. 3-5 hrs.
