Default Oakridge BBQ Game Changer review.

not a shameless plug for my sponsor, i swear.

i soaked some thighs for 2 hours in this stuff, a couple skin on and a couple skin off.

the results were farkin amazing. really! the chicken was moister, more tender, and had excellent flavor(something that has disappointed me in the past with chicken brine).

i know, no pics, kinda empty post, but, i just had to put the word out that i tried the stuff and it works and i would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone.

next cook, when i'm not so sloppy, thanks ash and the delivery, i'll post pics.

just thought i'd share a good BBQ product.

Does the brine enhance flavor or have its own?

maybe a little of both, but definatly has great flavor. when mike asked us to guinea pig it before he released it i was really impressed. i mixed up half strength for 5 hrs then rinsed and applied secret weapon and was blown away. the next week i took it to a contest and scored 2nd in chicken with a almost untested product.

Nice! It sounds like another home run from Oakridge.

certainly a bit of both. sorta like how seasoning makes a meats "bark" taste great, but on a subtler level.

it enhanced and complimented the birds taste.

A 1 lb. bag will make 1 gallon of brine at full strength or 2 gallons of brine at half-strength.

For a visual aid, the bag below is a one gallon zip lock bag and it has 8 large chicken thighs and 3 large boneless/skinless breasts in it with a half-gallon of brine. I could have fit probably another 4-6 thighs in there pretty easily.

As the other guys have said, our new brine does both. It not only enhances the natural flavor of the meat, but it also contributes its own flavoring deep within the meat. While the added flavor always remains subtle and never over-powering, the strength of the flavor contribution is directly related to the strength of the brine as well as the length of the soak. The flavor profile is very unique and not "Thanksgiving turkey-ish" at all. The best way I can describe the flavor is that it's like you know the meat has been seasoned with something, but you just can't put your finger on what it is, but you can't stop eating it because it's so good! The Japanese call it "umami" or the indescribable fifth flavor. The cool thing is; it does all this NATURALLY! We don't use any phosphates or nitrates in our new brine. It's 100% All Natural with no soy, gluten or MSG!

I placed my test order. BTW, how did you get that ziplock back so stuffed? I've never seen one so full.

Thanks for the review. I have my brine but have yet to get a chance to try it. Correct me if I am wrong but I thought it was 8oz per gallon at full strength so you could get 2 gallons at full strength from a 1# bag. Granted, this is from memory and so I could be mistaken.

VERY Carefully...

Actually, it was easy. Just load the chicken into the bag, then set it in your sink. With it setting in your sink, hold onto the opening with one hand and pour the brine into the bag with the other until it's completely full. Then, carefully zip it up. Some brine will spill out as you zip it closed, but not a lot. By doing it this way, you are left with virtually no air trapped in the bag. Just be sure it's 100% zipped closed and don't try this with cheap dollar store bags.
