I brine chicken unless I am forced to buy enhanced chicken because real chicken isn't available. My normal chicken brine is 1/2 cup Morton kosher salt, 1/2 cup sugar, a couple of tablespoons on soy sauce, a couple of table spoons of poultry seasoning and a gallon of water. I heat it to just under boiling to steep the herbs and then chill before using.
Cherry is my favorite wood for chicken but peach and a little hickory is good.
