Got an early start to the weekend last night! Did 4 split chicken breasts...soaked in Kosmo's Q chicken soak for about 5hrs, then rubbed with Smokin Coles bbq rub and on the weber Kettle with a chunk of hickory! GOOOOD!!!

what's that Kosmo stuff, and what is it's flavor profile?

Jim, the Kosmo's chicken soak is more of a "already mixed" brine type deal...just drop 3/4 of the product in half a gallon of water and you're good to go. I thought it worked pretty well...no noticeable flavor profile...but that could be because of the rub and sauce too. I did purposely overcook the chicken by about 15* to see if the product would give people a bigger margin of error when doing the breasts and I have to admit that it did succeed in that test...here is a sliced pic.

well it looks juicy, but with no flavor, you're telling me
the only benefit is just a premixed brine recipe?

I just got an email from the owner...here is what he said when I asked him about the chicken soak:

I mainly made it for comp purposes. I just wanted something that could be mixed with heating and done onsite instantly.
Everything already said goes for me to Greg.

I just went on Kosmo's Q website to check out the chicken brine product and they sell it in a 1/2 lb. sampler and a 2 lb. bag. How much are you putting in a half gallon of water, 3/4 of the 1/2 lb. bag or 3/4 of the 2 lb. bag?
