    I picked up a small 3# sirloin pork roast a couple months ago that has been languishing in my freezer since then. I pulled it out last night to thaw for today, then decided to brine it overnight before smoking it.

    I had some cranberry-apple juice in the fridge, so I took 2 cups of that, with 1 cup of apple cider vinegar, 1/2 cup of brown sugar and a dash of allspice for good measure. Tomorrow I plan to rub it down with some sort of sweet rub and smoke it with some apple/maple wood chips to see what becomes of it.

    Q-view will ensue tomorrow!

    We're just going to mark this one up as a Really Bad Idea™. While the pork came out ok at 150 and was still nice and moist, it had no flavor to it at after marinading all night long. Ah well, part of the fun in smoking is the journey you take to get there!
