1/4 cup Knob Creek
1 tsp Oriental Mustard powder[p]*stir well to disolve..add 1 cup ice to cool and add Chops*.[p]Here they are after a 2 hours, brined, rinsed. and dried.[p]Ready to go!![p]

  • Chubby,[p]Do you reuse your brine? If so, do you boil it before putting it away?
  • Those are pretty...I bet Chritopher loves you.

    BabyBoomBBQ,[p]Sometimes I do reuse ....(boil hard for 3-4 minutes and refrigerate).[p]Sometimes...I boil... add some cream, or butter, or more Knob Creek and reduce for a pan sauce.[p]Small amounts I usually pitch.[p]Evans

    Chubby,
    i would have no problems measuring out the knobb creek for the brine, but using 1/3 cup raging river would break my heart for 2 chops, those do look good though.

    Chubby,
    There you go using wierd words again. You had to look that one up, didn't you?... "Porcine". The definition I saw was
    "resembling a swine or pig...a bald, porcine old man".[p]This is this some sort of subliminal character assasination aimed at me, isn't it? You dog, you![p]Great looking chops, BTW![p]Lawn "plump and shiny" Ranger

    Chubby,
    I'm actually fear that I'm beginning to understand the way you think, and I'm sure that there's a law against it in most states.[p]Mike[p]

    <p />Chubby,
    Great, I can't wait to see you guys. Are you cooking, I have my menu set.
    Remember I do own a car wash. 5 days of rain really doesn't help the bottom line. Maybe a good weekend.
    It would be good for all of us to get away for awhile.[p]Mike
    I feel OK needs magical fruit.

    Chubby,[p]Sooooooo . . . . how were they?? Could you notice an interior flavor with only 2 hours of brining? I've only brined once and it was chicken breasts and I did it WAY too long - just wondering if this 2 hour time did you right.[p]And, come on, I mean, these pics are amazing as usual, but where's that macro cross-sectional shot with juices going everywhere??[p]Great job (again) and cheers,[p]TRex

    Master Jason:,[p]I now see Grasshopper....you have become too dependant on the "Macro".[p]Put down the mouse....Close your eyes!![p]Now...see the Chop's grain...be the grain.[p]Breathe in....Let the aroma be in your soul.[p]Then, and only then...can you become "One with the Chop"!!
