Cajun Brined Smoked Chicken

Cajun Brined Smoked Chicken Recipe

Ingredients:

  • 1 whole chicken

Brine:

  • 1 cup Morton Tenderquick
  • 2 quarts water
  • 3/4 cup cane syrup
  • Handful of red pepper flakes

Directions:

  1. Soak the chicken in the brine for 24 hrs.
  2. Rinse THOROUGHLY. If it's not rinsed good enough, it'll be too salty to eat. After rinsing, dry the chicken & brush with a thin coat of syrup.
  3. Sprinkle on a little Cajun seasoning & tie in a meat net or cheese cloth.
  4. Smoke over oak or pecan at about 200°-225° till it's tender & the juices run clear.
  5. It should take at least 6 hrs.
