Default What do you place your meat in for brining?

This isn't a topic about how to brine, or what brine to use but a topic of what do you put your meat in when you brine? And what not to place your meat in when you brine?

Before I used an aluminum bucket that would be use to hold champagne or beer on ice. Would this be ok to us for future brines?

I wouldn't use aluminium. For me stainless steel or appropriate plastic is better. You could place a big plastic bag in your aluminium bucket.

thought someone might say this. what about placing it in a garbage bag into the aluminum bucket?

BTW, the bucket doesn't say it is aluminum I am just assuming since it was 10 bucks at Target.

I have always heard to not use metal containers and I have just gone with that. I can't argue for or against it. I just trusted those that were saying it. Personally, If I am doing a big batch, I have a large 4 gallon plastic container with a lid I picked up from Restaurant Depot. I have also seen suitable things at Sam's. Some people will just use coolers that have been well cleaned and bleached. I have also seen people use smaller things like bus tubs or just large leftover storage containers.

I use a standard 5-gallon bucket. Or a small igloo cooler. Seems that a plastic bag inside of the bucket you currently use would work just fine.

My cooks are mostly small enough that I just use zip lock bags, for the bigger stuff such as whole chickens I use a small ice chest(plastic).

BTW: make sure you use food grade type containers/bags...a trash bag is not food grade most likely...

I use a ZIP bag for small stuff like chicken if I have allot or something big it's the Igloo cooler. If you have a spare fridge with room a Homer bucket is a good choice.
