I bought some beef short/flat ribs from the butcher today as fancied trying something different. Having had a Google of various dull as fuck recipes I came across a sort of dry brine type one that looks good.
Have always wanted to have a go at brining but have only ever found American recipes that ask for kosher salt and I cannot work out a British equivalent. I have a bag of posh sea salt - would that do?
Have swapped ribs for the brisket we were going to have for lunch today to make US style corned beef. Made brine of salt/sugar/peppercorns/bay leaf. Is in fridge. Will turn in the morning and daily according to recipe and should be ready to cook Friday or Saturday. Am really excited.
Tried making a brine with a pickling spice recipe but stank so strongly of cloves once heated I chucked it rather than risk ruining £10 worth of brisket and made a basic one instead.
Lol at sophist Turkey though. How do you bbq a whole Turkey? Do you spatchcock it?
Not salty at all! We have a large bell weber BBQ so it fits in whole and un-spatchcocked. You need a large disposable baking tray for it and you put the coals all round the edge to create a convection oven. Cook for 10/15 mins per pound plus 15 mins and voila, whole BBQ turkey!
Actually it's brilliant as I can use my oven for all the other trimmings Nd there's no stressing about oven space.
