Can you use the same type of brine for pork?
post #9 of 13

I have never brined pork. I use a straight rub on pork.

 

Pork rub

Garlic powder

onion powder

brown sugar

 wrap in plastic and let sit over night in the fridge.

That's all I've ever done. Just curious if a brine would bring more moisture to the pork.

I also did a brined chicken on Sunday.  Turned out great.  Mine ended up looking awfully similar to yours!

 

Very nice!
