nope, no brine. pulled them from the package, rubbed with EVOO and coated with rub. Then straight to the smoker. At 1 and 2 hours I brushed some apple cider vinegar on them and that was it. After 3 hours at 225, I put them over the remaining hot coals for a few minutes on each side and they were done.
Just a quick cook so they didn't go to waste.
