  • Good chicken and go hogs!

    Did the beer brine make a big difference?

  • Hey Bhugg, how was the skin?  I usually bump up my temp to 400 or so to get crispy skin.

    Z - The beer does make a small difference. I notice a difference in the beers also.  A generic american beer does not impart much flavor.  I go for the stronger tasting flavored beers.

    Ricky - I bump the temp up to 425 for the last 15 minutes or so to crisp the skin and it is good.
