Default Advice on brining times

Hello all!

Looking for advice on brining times. Using a simple brine. Gallon of water, 1c Kosher salt, and 1c sugar with some rub. 8-10 drumsticks. I was thinking a couple of hours, maybe? What do you guys think? 1st time chicken briner! Thanks :)

I'd even go upwards of 4hrs. Also you could probably half that recipe with that quantity of chicken. But that is the ratio of water/salt/sugar I use.

I brine my whole chickens overnight, then let them dry in the fridge until I am ready to cook. I have found that the brining process for chicken is pretty forgiving. If I go longer than planned, I don't notice any difference in the finished bird.

My standard advice is 45 minutes per pound.

I go 1-2 hours on chicken parts like wings, legs, thighs, etc.

Here's a chart I reference that's never steered me wrong:
