The hubby found this delicious Smoked Habanero brine at Whole Foods the other day.
According to Sweetwater Spice Company, "brines are the perfect preparation for grilling...because brining prevents overcooking – ensuring that the final product is moist and flavorful, something a sauce cannot do." - oh boy, were they right!
Yum! It was easy to prepare too:
Place meat in a plastic bag or re-sealable container.
Shake bottle well, pour over meat, then add equal parts water (approx 1/2 cup of BBQ bath & 1/2 cup of water per lb of meat).
Squeeze excess air out bag, let meat soak in BBQ bath (30 min - 1 hour, depending on meat and cut) - make sure it is completely submerged in bath.
Drain the brine and you're ready to cook!
Sweetwater Spice Company knows what they are talking about! I can't wait to try another flavor - maybe lime jalapeno?
