There are two very delicious food holidays coming up that we wanted to share with you all because cheese and guac deserve to be celebrated! Guacamole Day is on September 16th and Cheeseburger Day is on September 18th. Happy cooking EGGheads! It's time to think about getting out to one of the many #EGGfests around the country - see a list here
I would say to go ahead and brine even with an 8% solution already enhanced. Did that last weekend and it was perfect. Not too salty. Just cut the salt in half. Definitely made a world of difference with regard to moisture, flavor, and overall good…
While I applaud your culinary exploits with the whole hog I gotta say that cooked whole animals gross me out. Give me various cuts of meat and I will go to town...but when I see the skin and face a get a cold chill. But keep on doing your thing man.
Thanks for the responses. I did find a brine with half the amount of salt to compensate for the factory inject. I just want to get flavor in there and don't care about moisture as I feel the egg and the factory inject will take care of moisture.
