Various liquids for Brine

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Finally got my smoker back!!! Recently I have been thinking of using various liquids like sodas or beer instead of water for the brine.

 

Anyone ever try this?

 

I figure with soda the sugar content is to high so dilute it some. Right now I have some thighs and drumsticks brining, I kept 4 thighs aside and 1/3 of the "water" i used ginger ale. Probably could of just thrown ginger in instead, but I am also interested in trying some rootbeer or cream soda.

Now I have found a good brine and I haven't tried anything else yet it works so good too. I used Tip's Slaughter House Brine for Poultry and it is the bomb.

The ginger ale batch didn't turn out with any giant taste difference. Something I will plan to play around more with.

Here's a wiki on the subject.

I have read several posts with people using coke/cherry coke or Dr. Pepper for part of their marinade.
