Calibrate those eggs

Last week I calibrated everything in preporation for all the holiday cooking.
Four BGE dome thermometers, two Stoker pit probes, and four meat probes:[p][url= stuff/?action=view¤t=calibrate.jpg]calibrate.jpg[/url][p]The orange thing over the pot of boiling water is a piece of 10 gauge Romax electrical wire that is pretty rigid, but bendable. The spring loaded clamp on it allowed me to slide in/out the probes and securely held the tips down in the middle of the water.[p]The boiling temperature will vary depending on your altitude and current barometric pressure. Mine was 210.5 at the time.[p]You can use this online calculator to find out the exact boiling point at your location.

    Just finished rubbing and injecting five butts that will go on tomorow evening sometime. They spent the last 24 hours in a brine.[p]I had a little bit of Blanton's fine Kentucky bourbon last night and stayed up waaaayyyyy too late cooking after coming home from a party so I'm ready to go hibernate now.[p]

    I'm curious about the brine you used, if you have time. If not, that's fine, get some sleep.
