Cooking Chicken or Turkey

If you are cooking chicken on the grill or roasting a chicken, even roasting your Thanksgiving turkey. Brine it first. You can brine in the refrigerator overnight or for 3 or 4 hours.

2 tablespoons of salt and 2 tablespoons of sugar added to 2 cups of boiling water. Let it cool and cover chicken. What a difference on the grill or in the oven. Double the recipe for large amounts of poultry.

Pat the poultry dry, add any rub etc. and cook as usual.

You will be amazed at the difference in taste and it takes only a little time.
