Just Brine It Baby
« on: February 04, 2018, 10:09:28 PM »
Put an 8 1/2 pound Boston Butt on the Egg to smoke/slow cook.  (Smallest one Sam's had) Have never brined anything in my life.  Saw some stuff on the tube recently where they were showing some brining mixtures.  I submerged the butt for 14 hours in water, salt, sugar, onion, garlic and some rosemary. 

Slow cooked it 10 hours at about 240 on The Egg.  Fall off the bone. Normally, I put a couple of rubs on it, let it cook on indirect heat for about 5 hours, then wrap it in foil after dousing it with Woster to cook the remaining 4-5. I'll chop it up and put on a mixture of Sweet Baby Ray's original. cinnamon powder, honey and Frank's Hot Sauce.  I still did that, but the key was the taste of that pork prior to the sauce.  The brining made it so moist and salty, there was no need to put on the BBQ sauce.  Had some with and some without. 

Like I said, I've never brined anything but that put a simple Boston Butt over the top.  I'll be doing more of that in the future.  Anyone do a lot of brining in teh cookings?

Always been leery about brines having ruined run-of-the-mill dishes using table salt. Do you find it controllable?

I inject my butts, then let them stay in the fridge overnight. Remove them and apply rub, rest and then smoke them at 220-230 for about 18 hours or until done. I'm doing 10# butts though.

The recipe I saw called for 1 cup of salt per gallon of water.  I had never done it before and was a little wary myself so I cut that ratio down a good bit.  It turned out great.  In fact, I think the 1 cup per gallon would have put it over the top and ruined it.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

You can keep a wooden stake in your trunk
On the off-chance that the fairy tales ain't bunk
And Imma keep a bottle of that funk
To get motel parking lot, balcony crunk.

Brining is for the birds. 

Sweet Baby Ray’s...gross.   I’ll hook you up with a finishing sauce. 

There’s this Ghost Pepper rub they say is the bizz titz.

Sweet Baby Ray's is okay.  But when you take it to a new level with cinnamon powder, honey, brown sugar and Frank's Hot Sauce...it makes your dick hard.
