Do you get less smoke flavor when you brine????
Hello My Wise Brethren,
I have brined pork, chicken and turkey (all at different dates), smoked 'em for 2 hrs and turn it up to finish. Each time I have brined I have noticed very little smoke flavor comes through. However, when I just use smoke, turn it up to finish I have wonderful smokey flavor. I use a Traeger Lil' Tex Elite and usually hickory, but have used various pellets as well.
Has anyone else found this to be true as well?
