Step 1: Brining
You will now have to wait until the brine cools before adding the meat. I start this on the morning before the day I am going to grill. I then go to work, and when I get home, put the chicken in the pot, and then put in the fridge to grill the next day.
The next day, drain the thighs and then put the strainer back into the pot for carrying into the backyard.
