This was my first time brining. It was easy (although I had to add a bit more water to cover a 5 lb. chicken). The meat turned out VERY juicy, but we thought it tasted a bit too salty. Don't know if that was from the salt or the vinegar. I will experiment more, and maybe not use vinegar at all (most of the recipes I found don't use vinegar). But as I said, it was very juicy meat. Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
