Could be wrong.
Especially when you have 3 birds..... cook the breast perfectly on two of them, select the finest white meat from them and forget the dark meat. On the third one, don't worry about the breast, cook the dark meat to 180°+ and use it in the box.

What's wrong with injecting your brine? I do that all the time with a slightly lite version,..... injecting is better than thinking that osmosis will work in one hour........ 'cause it won't.
