Serves: Makes 4L

4 L luke warm water
1/3 Cup sea salt
2/3 cup maple syrup
3/4 cup tamari soy sauce
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
6 cloves garlic, slices
1 whole orange, squeeze juice into brine
2 tsp fresh thyme
2 tsp whole black peppercorns
4 bay leaves
1 medium onion, sliced

Step by Step Instructions
  1. Put all ingredients Into a glass or plastic bowl. If using a larger piece of chicken such as a 1/2 or whole bird, use a clean food safe plastic pail. Allow the chicken to brine for at least 8 hours. 12 hours is best. After your brining time is finished, remove the chicken and give a rinse under cold tap water to help remove excess salt. Preheat your BBQ or propane grill to 375 °F (190°C), place chicken over the direct heat to sear it. Once its seared, remove from direct heat and finish cooking indirectly until an internal temperature of 170°F (76°C) is reached. Remove from heat, cover and allow to rest for 10 mins before serving. This recipe works great for oven roasted chicken as well. **Do not save brine. This is a one time use brine and must be disposed of after use.
