Example of this is thawing a skinless chicken breast on the counter versus in the fridge. The counter thaw usually has the chicken swimming in a pool of water/juice by the time it is thawed. Less likely in the fridge. Probably not as much of a concern for a dense cut of beef like brisket, but a general practice that I try to follow when I can.
Makes a lot of sense, Thanks
