I used this recipe as stated. Did not change anything. Had a 8 plus pound turkey and smoked it without any wood chips. Sooooo moist ! This is a keeper.
Great marinade. Grilled on a gas grill. Juiciest chicken I've ever grilled. Not over flavoured and not to salty. Will be a regular meal during grilling season.
This brine combined with a bourbon brown sugar seasoning/ bbq sauce that I smoked then grilled produced the best boneless chicken thighs I’ve ever had.
It had a very distinct flavor, it made the chicken very tender and juicy. I actually put the birds on the grill!!!
