This cook was definitely an experiment for me. I have never brined anything before despite seeing the technique used regularly for competition BBQ. When I came across this recipe in ‘HOG’, a cook book I have owned for quite a while, I knew I should give it a go. So I did. This cook has also inspired the new series of blog posts entitled ‘Cook From a Book’. I won’t detail the entire recipe because you can go buy the book if you like the look of it but I’ll describe roughly what I did and how it all went.
