    DIRECTIONS: THE BRINE

    1. Season the chicken with Q-Rub and then season again with Brisket Pepper.

    2. In a large mixing bowl combine the first three ingredients with 1/2 gallon of the hottest water you can get from your kitchen sink.

    3. Add sugar and salt. Mix until fully dissolved.

    4. Add 1/2 gallon of ice to the mixing bowl.

    DIRECTIONS: PREPPING THE CHICKEN

    1. Spatchcock the chicken. (Click here for how to spatchcock a chicken video)

    2. Place chicken in a large container and cover with Brine. 

    3. Cover the container with a tight lid and place in a cooler or fridge overnight.

    DIRECTIONS: SMOKING THE CHICKEN

    1. Place chicken skin side up in a 225 degree smoker for 2 1/2 hours.

    2. Insert a probe thermometer into the thigh. Once the temperature reaches 155 degrees, your chicken is ready to enjoy!

    Note: For a Northern Alabama twist on our Smoked Chicken, dunk the entire finished chicken in our Alabama white barbecue sauce, Ivory.
