Chicken Tips

1 package prepares 8–10 pounds of meat

2 packages prepare up to 20 pounds of meat

Dissolve 1 entire package of Wild Sky Seasonings injection brine mix with 3 quarts of water.  

Inject brine into both sides of breasts, thighs, drumsticks. Inject generously. 

After injection, place meat into clean non-metallic container.  Three-gallon plastic buckets work well. Use a five-gallon bucket for whole turkeys.  Pour remainder of brine into bucket with meat and add water if necessary to cover meat entirely.  Refrigerate at least 8 hours, up to 24-32 hours.  Stir occasionally.  Remove meat and drain, discard remaining brine.

Cook meat according to your smoker directions or bake as directed below.
