    I wasn't planning on posting this so that is the reason for the lack of pics, my apologies up front. Plus, I know this may not be the best use of a venison loin but I wanted to see how this would come out if i was to make a venison ham. It also gave me an excuse to bust out the mini's. The Mini WSM and the iGrill Mini that is. Also thew in some drums into the brine. They both sat in there for 4 days without injecting it.

    I never installed a grommet but the lid closed just fine.

    I was very pleased with the sweetness vs the saltiness as neither were overpowering the venison flavor. The same went for the chicken drums. They were very juicy and bursting with flavor. This is going to be my go to wet brine for all my hamming needs! I will be sure to be more pic heavy on the next one.
