The brine will make meat so tender and moist that you won't believe it! 


    * 10 cloves garlic, minced
    * 3 quarts water
    * 1/2 cup kosher salt
    * 1/4 cup black peppercorns
    * 1/4 cup sugar
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
    * 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
    * 1/4 teaspoon ground bay leaf

Directions

      Bring all ingredients to a boil in a large saucepan, reduce heat and simmer for 15 minutes.
      Allow to cool completely in refrigerator before using.
      Pour over meat in a stainless steel or plastic bowl
      Place in refrigerator for recommended time (listed below)
      Rinse meat and cook / smoke until recommended temp.

Note: Be sure liquid is ice cold when the food goes into it and always brine in the refrigerator.
