Default Brine for Pork Loin

I am going to cook for the wife's family this weekend on the Fatboy. Doing
six racks of BB and one whole loin. Thinking of cutting the loin into three even pieces. One with wild rice stuffing, one with a bacon weave and one part just with a dry rub. I want to try a brine, but my concern is having it too salty. I read some where that after brinning you can soak the meat in cold water and change it often to pull out some of the salt. Does that work on pork loin? I found a recipe for a brine that sounds good, it has kosher salt, apple cider,
maple syrup, brown sugar and black pepper in it. Does 24 hrs sound right for a whole loin?

Soaking the meat in fresh water is typically done with something like corned beef or country ham to pull out some salt. It's not necessary with a brine pork loin.

But... Before you go and brine, make sure that the pork isn't enhanced (injected with a salt water solution). It's very hard to find pork that isn't enhanced around here.

If it's not enhanced, here is what I use for pork...

1/2 cup Morton Kosher Salt
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup soy salt or worcestershire
2-3 T of whatever tub I am going to use on the outside.
1 gallon cold water

I mix it all up and heat to just under boiling and then let it cool and strain out any bits from the rub. Then I brine for one hour per pound (in the fridge). Then I rinse and dry and let it rest for at least an hour to equalize.

Never thought of that, thanks for the tip I will read the label.

When you quote someone else's post, please use the quote button in the lower right hand corner of their post. That way their post in quoted and it shows that it came from that person.

Hmmmm, pretty sure I did use the quote button. I will be more careful in the future.

If you did then you deleted the QUOTE tags from around the text

No worries...
