    Deliciously moist and smokey chicken at about 1/2 the cost of shop bought chicken. You just require a hooded BBQ or similar, to transform an ordinary chicken into an extra-ordinary bird to eat hot or cold.

    1. Brine mix will suit a chicken up to about 1.5 kg.
    2. Prick the chicken all over deeply with a sharp fork. Soak in the brine for 18 hours in a Ziplock style bag or glass bowl in the fridge.
    3. Soak some woodchips (redgum, hickory or mesquite) in water overnight, then place into a BBQ smoker box or heavy pouch of aluminium foil (prick two small holes in the pouch).

    Tip

    The probe thermometers take the guesswork out of meat internal temperatures; eliminates raw internal meats.
