I got a side of pork...cut it up into 8 slabs and brined it for 4 days....turning it each day so each piece got fully brined. I followed the recipe to a T, but did increase the peppercorns to 1/4 cup. The pork was then smoked using apple wood! Wow and...wow! Was this ever delicious! I will never think to go to regular bacon when I can do this. Thanks for an excellent brine....I will do this one again!!!
Delicious! Used a bit less pepper, but it was perfect on my pork chops. Marinaded chops for 5 hours. I can't wait to try on pork tenderloin!
Used this for pork ribs before grilling....loved it.
I have one word for this recipe...AWESOME! I halved the recipe and used it for two extra thick pork chops. I have used this same cut of pork chops often, but marinated in this brine made them really tender and juicier. Made for Jan 2010 Comfort Cafe.
Great brine for pork. Thanks for posting.
Simply delicious! I will not cook pork any other way. .the entire family loved!
This was GREAT !! I used it on pork tenderloin (cooked on the grill). The meat was tender, juicey, and flavorful! I can't wait to try iy on a roast chicken!!
Wow, was this ever good! I brined two 0.75 pound pork tenderloins for about 24 hours, then grilled them until internal temp was 170F. Wonderful flavor, the maple flavor penetrated the meat fully. I wouldn't brine any longer than I did - in fact I'd probably reduce the number of hours to 12-15 next time I make this. Truly a winner! Thanks for posting.
This was awesome!!! Made a pork tenderloin! It was smoked and it was tender!!! Thanks
