Fill a large brining bucket or pot with 1 gallon of water. Set aside.
Place a pot over medium-high heat and add 1-1/2 quarts of water plus all ingredients. Bring to a simmer.
Cook until salt is just dissolved, remove from heat, add ice and allow to cool completely.
Pour cold brine into water in bucket, stir to combine then add protein of your choice (it should be completely submerged). Refrigerate for a minimum of 8 hours and a maximum of 24 hours.
If brining in an ice chest rather than a refrigerator, keep brine bucket surrounded with ice with a constant temperature of 40ºF or below.
Chef's Note: This brine is enough for 2 to 3 chickens, just make sure they are completely submerged in the brine. This is my favorite brine for use on anything I plan to cook on my smoker.
