"We all enjoyed this, but I was not overly impressed. Would make it again. I doubled the recipe, but I am not positive you would need to double the brine. I feel 1 1/2 times would probably be sufficient. And if you like saucy BBQ you will need to add more sauce either when mixing together or at the table."
"Made over this past weekend. I changed one thing and that was the liquid smoke. The second time I only added two tablespoons instead of the full 1/3 cup. I don't like things too smoky and it was perfect. Very tender chicken and I used my own homemade chipotle sauce and I did add extra because I too like it saucy. Very, very good. Oh by the way, the chicken was not mushy from soaking in the brine, I let my chicken soak for 16 hours. Delicious."
"My family liked this. It seemed a little dry so I added more BBQ sauce, but then, we like things a little more saucy than most recipes suggest."
"Good, a little dry so added more barbecue sauce."
"According to America's Test Kitchen, my source for all cooking rules, NEVER brine chicken longer than an hour or it gets spongy."
"This was Fantastic. I was worried that the chicken would dry out like it usually does with other crock pot recipes, but it didn't. the flavor was great!"
"Wow! Absolutely tremdous! Made exactly as written, flavor was perfect."
"Was very good, made per recipe even though I was skeptical with that much liquid smoke. Wasn't overpowering at all."
