Welcome...no one's making fun of you...we've have some recent "disagreements" over the merits of brining, and the popcorn merely indicates folks are ready to watch a big "discussion."

Not to worry. :biggrin:

I've heard that brining pork ribs makes them taste "hammy".
Never tried it though.

We don't brine our ribs and you need a bib to eat our ribs! They come out juicy every time to perfection. It's hard getting the pop up timer to work in ribs, but we get them to work perfect everytime too!! We put the ribs on nekkid just with S&P and they're perfect, everytime. Did I mention it's not necessary to brine turkeys?? :night:

I think your pit has character. I envy you guys with the stick burners. There are no hardwoods available in Alaska, only spruce, birch, aspin, or cottonwood. I doubt if any of these would work. Oh well it's a small sacrifice to pay for living here. Plus wild salmon out the ying yang.

larry, if you ever had a brined turkey you'd never go back.

ps. im a cowboys fan too. HOW BOUT' THEM COWBOYS!!!
E55,
There's really no reason to brine turkeys as they are already brined/enhanced. We do tons of them every holiday and they come out absolutely perfect every single time. Once the pop ups pop up, they're done!! One was so juicy we needed to wear a full rain suit just to eat it! Brining is a waste of time. :dunno:

Cowboys Schmowboys! I hate the Cowboys!!

I like Stainless A lot also!

Hoss, Did you have a moment and beat the living Hell out of your smoker or am i seeing things? Because it looks like somebody put an Ass whoopin on your pit. [/quote:2wn3bmb2]



That's not a smoker. It's a can of whoop ass!
