Hey Poolplyer

Here is an answer to your question about beer and merinades.

Marinade is another method to add flavor. The main difference between brining and marinating is simple. Brines are salty solutions and Marinades are acidic solutions. The acid in the marinade help tenderize the meat; so be careful and don't marinate too long.

If you’re going to marinade a bird, I highly recommend removing the skin, otherwise the marinade doesn’t penetrate. Marinate for at approximately 12 hours.

If you’d rather leave the skin on, then follow directions for injecting.

There are many marinades out there, one I’ve used with success:

1 can of beer

2 sticks of butter

2 Tablespoons salt

3 Tablespoons of Worcestershire

3 Tablespoons of Soy Sauce

1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder

1 Teaspoon Onion Powder

Option: Add Tabasco or Habanero sauce to mixture for heat.

Mix ingredients, simmer and then cool. Inject before butter sets up. Let marinade for 12, preferable 24 hours
