      These were so juicy and flavorful. I ended up using maple syrup instead of molasses and thyme instead of sage in the final garlic rub but it worked out really well. My husband loved them and so did I! Thanks for a delicious brine and the great idea of a final rub before cooking.

      This was so good! I made it gluten free by subbing Redbridge sorghum beer then marinated for 8 hours. It's still not grilling season, either, so the broiler was put to very good use! I will definitely make this again!
