Hi. Can I brine in a steel pot or does a slight metallic taste come through the meat?thanks
You should be fine. I brine my turkey in a plastic bucket as recommended by CI--can't imagine plastic is better than steel! (If I'm brining just chicken breasts, I just use a large Ziploc bag.)
I've brined smaller turkeys in stainless steel stock pots with no metallic taste that I could detect. Go for it.
I brine in steel regularly -- no problem whatsoever.
steel is fine, but much better are the big 2 1/2-gallon zip-loc bags. they're relatively new, so you might have to look for them.but they're very convenient.
Yes you can. But I also use the ginormous Ziplocks now. Turkeys of all sizes will fit. You could fit a golden retriever in the biggest size.
Although just to be clear, we don't endorse brining golden retrievers.
they generally have enough intramuscular fat that they stay moist anyway.
Thanks all. FYI I'm going to brine,then confit a bonless pork shoulder in lard and goose fat. wish me luck!
Yum, please report back on your results.
