Brining Meats make is very! juicey and tender everytime. I always !!!! brine my chicken,ribs and turkey. full of flavor because with brining you can add different herbs and spices for more flavor. When putting your meat in the brine make sure the meat is submerge all the way in brine if not !!! add more water and put a plate on top to keep meat fully covered.
