Blending the earthiness of smoked Ancho and Chipotle Chilies with the sweetness of Apple Juice, Tamarind, and Brown Sugar, this brine concentrate accentuates the flavor of beef while producing tender, juicy brisket.
When smoking brisket for long periods of time, meat runs the risk of drying out. Brining provides a margin for error by helping the meat hold on to its natural juices longer and at higher temperatures, marinades do not.
For an excellent bark, strain the used brine through a mesh colander to catch the spices in the brine. Re-apply these as a wet rub prior to smoking.
For Injecting brisket, dilute the brine 5:1 (five parts water, one part brine) for competition injecting.
For braising brisket, dilute the brine 5:1 to use as a braising liquid.
For vacuum tumbling or longer brining times longer than 1 hour per pound, dilute 4:1.
All of our brines are naturally fat free, gluten free, and contain no flavors, colors, or preservatives.
