I finished my brined/tenderquick ribs last night and field tested em on the table. My opinion..They were great if you like ham. But my opinion is that if you want ham, go buy a ham and cook it. The taste was very similar to ham, but I missed the BBQ sauce and or the plain rubbed smoked exterior taste. They just were not IMHO "RIBS".
I may over had a bit of overkill on either the tenderquick, or the salt in combination.
I did to pork chops along with the ribs in the same brining container. The chops were excellent and I coated those with ground peppercorn prior to the grilling. Nice and juicy and flavorful and did have the hammy taste to em, which I didn't detracted from the chop's themselves. Again, I think I might reduce both salt and tenderquick in a brine for chops. I might also substitute apple cider for the liquids.
Fun in trying tho...seldom is something really inedible except when you toss in a rubber glove like one of our gals...:-)
