Used it on the Thanksgiving turkey, but it was my first brine so nothing to compare with as far as result. It tasted great to me.

I have, and I like it. My default chicken brine is 1/4 cup kosher salt and 1/4 cup brown sugar in about a gallon of water. I usually do that for split breasts or pieces that I'm going to grill offset. Spicescan be added at your discretion- a little garlic and rosemary are nice.

Now Smoker, if you attended the first NYC BBQ Cooking Class - Paul Kirk's School of Pitmasters, you wouldn't have to ask that question.
