A note here on brining chikens...it may be adviseable to add the instruction to rinse the bird carcass after brining/before cooking in order that the excess salt is ridden of...(if you like salty chicken meat and or gravy, you can always add it; if you don't, or can't take that in your diet, getting rid of the excess is a good idea!)

Sorry I'm a newbie on this List, have you discussed the "Dancing Chicken" aka "Beer Butt Chicken" yet? Its another wonderful method of getting the moisture into chicken/turkey meat, and or "tweaking" your results that little bit more...

Note that the "brining" concepts work equally well with beef and pork...if you are interested, I can give a few starter ideas...

We tried brining, but found it didn't add any value, especailly considering the time involved. We think it changes the texture of the meat as well.

We have never had a problem with moist juicey turkeys or chickens when smoking them. In fact, you need a bib to eat them. If they were any juiceier, you would need a pool.

Also, if you buy a frozen turkey, it is already brined. They come packed in a solution.
