We’re feeling pretty super, how about you? The big game is fast approaching, and while we love football, we love an excuse to invite people over and cook even more! You too can cook like a champion with recipes from Dr. BBQ’s NFL Gameday Cookbook: Grilled Tuna Sandwiches from Seattle and Baked Brie from New England. Who’s going to win? You’ll have to cook both to find out.

Another butt question....

Do you brine a boston butt before cooking? Seems like a lot of trouble, just wondering if its worth it. A friend, who is well known for his cooking says he has never used brine and wouldn't go to all the trouble.

I've got the time if it makes a big difference. Would like your opinion.

    You could inject it but a brine might give you too much of a cured or ham flavor.

    A brine will turn it into buckboard bacon. We do them on occasion, but it will change the flavor. If you haven't done one yet then I think you should try it at some point.
