We hope everyone enjoyed their Fourth of July weekend and is excited for more warm weather grilling! This week, we’ll be making these two burgers: Stuffed Portobello Mushroom and Caribbean Chicken, and also eating lots of these Ice Cream Sandwiches in honor of National Ice Cream Month! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here

To brine a butt or not, that is my question

Hi all,

Just wondering how many of us brine Butts before smoking. I only have two under my belt. For the first, I used the 2004 Eggtoberfest (Bill Blakley) brine recipe and the nearly the same for the second, but replaced part of the molasses with sorghum (ran out). I also injected the second with an apple juice-dry rub mixture. So, the question is: Do you brine? If so, will you share your brine tips?

Thanks in advance for your reply.
