    pork but foiling question

    Next time use a fat seperator before you pour the juice back onto the meat. This will remove the excess fat. However, the juice will still jell. As the connective tissue breaks down under slow cooking, it turns to gelatin. That is the same stuff that makes jello. Gelatin is good suff in meat...

    Brine I just made up....

    Dave, I would just add the water with a bit more of this/that. It will turn out great either way (as long as there is not too much salt). You did use kosher salt, right? Last year my brine was too salty, so this year, I'm using 1/2 the salt.

    Brined Bluefish....My first try

    Flash, Did you put the fish under a fan after brining to develop the pellicle? Good looking smoke. Try brining for 12 hours or so.

    How long to Brine?

    I brine chicken every week. I generally do three hours of brine. I defrost from 9am to noon, brine from 12:30 to 3:30 and roast from 4 to 5:30. When I do Turkey, I brine overnight, but try to keep it under 10 hours. Last turkey I brined for 16 hours and it was too salty.
