Hey everybody, my name is dave, nickname is Chief. I live in Kent Wa. I cook outside on most days using a Char-griller both gas and charcoal. I have two grills. I come from a family of cooks and my dad was a big time bbq'er. I love to smoke meats and until recently I wrapped and smoked almost everything in bacon. I've had some health issues and my Dr. has me on a low sodium eating plan. I've been following his orders and have lost weight and feel good, cut way way back on my consumption of bacon. My friends think I've given up on smoking and bbqing but I really haven't. I just choose to eat better, more veggies and fruit. And now am looking for rubs and brines to fit my lifestyle. My question is I want to use a buttermilk brine, low sodium recipe that I can soak country style pork ribs for this weekend. I know most recipies use lots of salt, sugar and or brown sugar so my question might be a tough one. I'm thinking a little kosher salt, no sugar and lots of herbs. any suggestions? Thanks again for letting me join. Chief.
