    It tastes like lemons... In all seriousness though- as long as you use a good ratio of water to protein/acidic liquids/booze, you won't have to worry about the protein 'cooking' in the brine.

    Brining IS worth the extra effort IMHO and that is beautiful looking BBQ chicken.

    I think Thomas Kellers has a brine recipe with lemons.

    Doesn't hurt the the guy is a pro, but there are 2 simple tricks that will make your photos have that "pro" look.

    The most import thing in sexy food photos like this is the lighting. Natural, slightly indirect lighting is hard to beat when indoors (in other words it should be sunny/ close to a window, but if you look from the perspective of your food, your subject, you should not be able to see the actual sun). When outside, an overcast / cloudy day is actually much better than a bright sunny day. Basically, you want nice, warm even light for a nice even exposure; not the harsh glare and dark shadows that come from too-bright / blaring sun... and certainly not overhead florescent or dim incandescent light.

    The other tick for creating depth / the nice blurring effect of objects in the foreground / back ground is to use a large aperture (the f-stop setting on your lens or camera). Basically, you want the hole that lets light into the camera's sensor to be set to the biggest possible opening. This creates the narrow depth of field and the nice blurring. Getting into a unique perspective like low/ close and at an angle instead of just looking straight down also helps to emphasize that depth of field effect.
