2 weeks and 2 days ago, I put 4 big chunks of pork loin into a tub of Pop's brine. I used the brine just like he first listed it. I usually add other stuff to it, but the wife and I wanted to see how it would be like this. We also didn't trim any fat, again just to see how it goes. I know it'll be edible, just not sure what the fat will or will not do for it. She called me a little bit ago and told me to check my email. It seems that she needed to put some stuff into the garage frig, so she took the loins out, soaked them in fresh water for 30 minutes, and now has them setting out to get a pelicle on them. Yeah, I married a good one! 2 will be rolled in cracked black pepper, minced onion, and granulated garlic. The other 2 will go on naked. I'll smoke when I get home. More pics later!
