Brining chicken using Todd’s Sugar Cures


  • Add 1-2 lbs of Sugar Cure to 1 gallon of water in a bucket
  • Mix water and cure thoroughly
  • Submerge the chicken in the water (Make sure it stays submerged)
  • Put the bucket of brine and chicken in your fridge overnight
  • (Next day) Rinse the chicken well with cold water
  • Sprinkle the chicken with Todd’s Barbecue Spice and Todd’s Coarse Black Pepper
  • Don’t forget to put the seasoning on both sides of the chicken!
  • Add some seasoning to the cavity of the chicken.
  • Put a can of beer in the chicken cavity, a 12 ounce can works best
  • Grill the chicken for 2 to 3 hours at 300-325°F, or until the internal temperature reaches 165°F for the breast meat and 180°F for the thigh meat
  • Remove the chicken from the grill
  • Let it rest about 5 minutes
  • Carve and serve immediately
  • Bon appétit 😋
