Brining is like marinating but it is faster and more effective because it tenderizes every protein in the meat, not just the outside.

In addition to a brine’s superior ability to penetrate meat as a tenderizer, brines also protect meat from drying out while cooking.

Brines work in much less time than marinades requiring only 30 minutes for chicken pieces and 1 hr for steaks or chops.

Brining produces juicier meat, even when the outside is charred.

Unlike a marinade’s use of acids to break down the outside of meat, brines use osmosis to tenderize meat at its center and season the whole cut.
