    In theory stainless is ok. The other metals not ok. That’s what I’ve read.

    I honestly can't remember which post it was, but I read it here. Might be right though. I'm pretty sure it was a rule passed down for generations. I didn't see a reason to not follow the advice I read so I got me a brining tub :)

Local grocer had thin western ribs $1.29 a lb. Bought 2 trays worth and threw them all in the Pops brine for a few days. Didn’t have time to smoke them so just baked off in the oven. They were outstanding.
