First Use

Ditalini authorized the purchase of an electric rotisserie for the new Weber gas grill, and I’ve been looking around for something to use it on.  Friends recommended I brine and rub a chicken, then cook it on the spit, so that’s what I’m doing.

The chicken is in the brine (3/4 cups kosher salt, 1/2 cup sugar, 3 qts water).  Since it’s a five-pounder I’m soaking it for five hours.  I’ll rinse it off and pat it dry later, rub it with a commercial poultry rub I got from the butcher at the corner Safeway, and let it sit in the fridge overnight.  We’re having company tomorrow night, so I’ll start cooking the chicken sometime tomorrow afternoon.

Expect a full report tomorrow or the next day!
