    Hello from Northern California

    I've been using this site frequently, and more so the last year since my outdoor kitchen was completed. I'm planning to cook about half of my Thanksgiving dinner out here.

    I was considering brining a big pile of turkey thighs that I will grill on Thursday, but it sounds like you don't recommend a wet brine for poultry. Simon & Garfunkel rub it is!

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all.

    Not trying to jam your plans up, but many (including me) have not been crazy about the S&G rub.

    If you haven't used it before and since you are using cut pieces and not a whole turkey you may want to hedge your bets and only do 1/2 in the S&G and 1/2 in another seasoning just in case.

    A good OTS is Tony Chachere's, but I have seen many give advice to just dry brine and inject with butter.

    Welcome!

      Nice rig. I have the same grill in the 38" version. I love it. And since you are making thighs, why not experiment with wet and dry brines. You have so many options with thighs.

        I like to wet brine cut pieces. Here's my poultry brine: 1 gallon cold water, 1 C table salt, 1 C sugar, brine 1 hr (for chicken) 2 hrs probably for turkey. That is, assuming it's not enhanced, self basting, yada yada. Dry the pieces, especially the skins, off real well. Add a spritz of spray oil like Pam, then some pepper. Then grill/smoke!

        Nice outdoor kitchen by the way!
