    I used a basic brine, but added beer, orange, lemon, onion and peppercorns. 6 hours.
    Smoked on LOW indirect heat with orange wood and a water bath. 2 hours.
    The rub was a citrus rub; finished w/mix of orange juice, lemon, butter & honey.

    The spuds, simply brushed with honey, butter, s/p

    And the salad, the end of the garden. Yellow tomatoes, red onion, cucumber, and a citrus champagne, jalapeno vinaigrette.

    Thanks everyone

    Steve, I don't brine too often. Usually when I use my smoker; and sometimes when I am making really thick chops.

    But I found when I am using my grill for smoking; where the meat cooks a bit hotter than a smoker, but still a long time; the brine really helps the meat from drying out.

    Love the colors, textures and angle of the salad in the second photo from the top, but whole dinner looks very tasty.

    I usually use my smoker; but a bit quicker method I used my propane grill this time.

    A water bath on the HOT side, the chicken on the side heat off. A smoker box with wood chips. It took about 2:15 for quarters, maybe 2:30. LOW LOW heat about 200. On my smoker I get a FULLER smoke flavor but quarters if I use both racks will take about 4 hours if I fill it up.

    I also have 2 smokers, my charcoal and my electric. I use the electric for convenicnce; but both use a water bath and wood chips.

    I have made chicken, whole and parts, pork butt (under 4 lbs), same with brisket, ribs, and salmon right on the grill; but the smoke flavor is not nearly as intense, but still good. I use my charcoal one when I really want that type of flavor.

    What type of smoker did you get? they are fantastic.
    Also using different woods make a big difference. I used a citrus/orange mix this time (first time for that); it is a mild smoke flavor, but very floral. We have a local BBQ place, but check online, lots of companies where you can get a variety of woods
