Brined Drunken Chicken Quarters are what I cooked...
Started by making brine...



Ingredients include...
1 gal well water
1/2 cup salt
1/2 cup teriyaki sauce
1 cup maple syrup
5 shots woooosssieee sauce
1 TBS yardbird
1 bunch trimmed green onion tops
3 chopped sprigs rosemary
heated on stovetop until the spices dissolved and it smells wonderful!!!!

Added 2 cups of "Special Spring Water" to that, once the brine cooled a bit..



Then added 15 pounds of Chicken Quarters and brined in the fridge
for 24 hours........



Getting the Stubby DrumPit ready to cook all that chickie goodness...



Made me a little Breakfast on the RedHead while the Stubby came up to temp...



Then it happened........the batteries go dead in my Camera....no cooking pix......

I put the batteries in the charger and went about cooking.....

I'm using Red Oak and Pecan Shells for the Smoke and cooked the chicken
for a little more than an hour @ 375-400* until 170* internal temp....

meanwhile batteries are charging.....

Everyone is eating their fill....

batteries still charging.....

Brined Drunken Chicken was a big success, moist, juicy, flavorful....

batteries are charged, finally!!!!...


Not exactly what I had envisioned for the Throwdown, but you
play the hand dealt.......so......
........My entry....



It really was very good Chicken......
