Basic Brine Solution

Brining is a popular method for improving the flavor and moisture content of lean meats like chicken, turkey, pork and seafood. Brined meat tends to cook faster than unbrined meat. Basic brine recipes contain salt, sugar, and flavorings. And good brine recipes strike a balance between these three components, so that no single taste or flavor is overpowering in the smoked meat. I use kosher salt most of the time because it dissolves quickly but Kosher salt and table salt are the most common salts used in flavor brining.
