I recently came across this article, Quickly Brine Chicken When You Don't Have Much Time, which suggests 2-3 hours in a 10% brine, followed by a 1-hour rest. Does this work? If so, are there any trade-offs over compared to using a longer, weaker brine?

    @user1575: I've tried to flesh out your question a bit... If this isn't what you were looking for, please clarify! – Shog9 Oct 13 '10 at 22:28

Given the source (Michael Ruhlman) and that it was linked by Seriouseats, I am willing to bet cash money that not only does it work exactly as stated, it will provide spectacular results.
