I sliced up about 4.25 pounds of beef yesterday. Then I measured out 4.25 tblsp of TenderQuick to ad to a brine. The brine consists of mostly my BBQ sauce(ketchup based,sweet sauce), a small amount of teriaky sauce, and some worchestire sauce and water. Now I just read for bines I should use 1 cup TQ per 4 cups water...Is that correct? If it is I'm pretty lucky because last batch I did 1tblsp/lb in a brine. edit: It is still in the brine so if someone with more knowledge thinks I should add more TQ please let me know.
