I have been hankering some Beer Can Chicken (BCC) lately so I brined a bird last night in a basic brine of water, salt, spices, and sugar.




I like jabbing a fork in a lemon over and over and sticking the lemon down the bird's neck. The lemon then flavors the meat throughout the cook.


This is one of the rubs I picked up in Hawaii a few months back (Hawaiian Smoke) and man does it smell good. The ingredients are sea salts, cane sugar, garlic, black pepper, natural smoke flavor, and other spices.




On the grill!

Will post finished pics.

Basic Brine

1 Gallon Water
3/4 cup kosher salt
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbl pepper
2 tsp cayenne pepper
several sprigs of thyme

Update: about an hour into the cook.





Update: Finished




Resting.


Slicing the moist bird.


About halfway into slicing.




Plated....man o man was it flavorful. I think I will have to order some of that rub when its all gone.

jeepdad I bet the Hawaiian Spice rub was incredible Very Happy
I like the way you toothpick closed the neck, I've put onion & lemons inside
the cavity before...but never thought to close it up as you have. Will have to try. The plated results look delicious. You always take great photos.

Cool

jeepdad, Mighty fine looking chicken you got there. Tasty pics and ideas as always.

I wonder how they make "natural smoke flavor"? Shocked Question Any ideas?
