To Brine or not to Brine

In doing a Butt-Chicken does it make a big difference if you brine or not?

    Big Cat,
    I think it makes a huge difference. Not that you can't do a great chicken without brine (I just did the other day), but you owe it to yourself to at least try it sometime. A simple salt/sugar brine is worth doing. Brant's Brine recipe is heaven. [p]Do it both ways, and see what you like best. Brined birds cook a bit faster, and are a more resistant to drying if overcooked.
    An slightly overcooked brined bird will be much better than a slightly overcooked un-brined bird. Give it a shot, and let us know what you think.[p]NB
