Can I reuse Pop's Curing Brine?

  1. I have some pheasant and duck in Pop's brine that is due to come out and into the smoker tomorrow. I have more duck I want to cure/brine.

    Can I use the same curing brine liquid for my next batch? 

    Thanks in advance for any and all help. 
  2. The meat you have in it now,has most likely absorbed all the salt and cure already. So I would say No do not reuse it.

    I would say no too but shoot pops a PM and ask him.. You might be able too depending how small the pieces/amount are and how much brine they are in......

    No.  The meat has absorbed the curing ingredients, and likewise expelled blood, juices and bacteria into the brine while doing so.  It cannot be re-used, but is inexpensive enough to make more; that is why I stuck to just necessary basic ingredients, nothing fancy or expensive.
