    Looks great! Thanks for posting - awesome pics.

    Can you describe what the texture of the chicken was like? 1.5 hrs seems pretty short for a smoke, but with the temp of 350 - 375, it's kind of like smoke-roasting I guess? Did the skin get crispy? Looks a bit in the one pic.

    Also, what did you put on the corn? Looks like some kind of butter-herb baste.

    Looks tasty... Corn grilled that way is about as good as it gets. The whole meal looked wonderful.

    Brine is salt water, isn't it? How much salt do I add and is it table salt?
