Cajun Brined Smoked Chicken

Cajun Brined Smoked Chicken Recipe


  • 1 whole chicken


  • 1 cup Morton Tenderquick
  • 2 quarts water
  • 3/4 cup cane syrup
  • Handful of red pepper flakes


  1. Soak the chicken in the brine for 24 hrs.
  2. Rinse THOROUGHLY. If it's not rinsed good enough, it'll be too salty to eat. After rinsing, dry the chicken & brush with a thin coat of syrup.
  3. Sprinkle on a little Cajun seasoning & tie in a meat net or cheese cloth.
  4. Smoke over oak or pecan at about 200°-225° till it's tender & the juices run clear.
  5. It should take at least 6 hrs.
