    Apple juice, bourbon, white pepper, fresh garlic, low sodium soy.
    Amounts decided by the poundage of pork and your tastes. Marinate at least 24hrs.

    I rarely wet brine anything anymore. Mostly dry rubs. Then they marinate in their own juices.

    I actually do a dryrub on turkey too. Just not in its juices. Try to let excess drip away with poultry.

    Smoker is cooling off as I type. What 'rubs' do you use?

    More often than not I'll just use one of the "Weber" (same guys as the BBQ) or "Big Ron's" out of Texas. Interesting the difference. Weber's is very light as to the end result. Ron's ..... WHOOOA! ... a little goes a long way.

    I usually use 'Big Ron's' out of Houston, Texas for just about 'everything.' Only thing with dry rubs is a little goes a long way start with a light hand.

    They are my own mix. But a fantastic rub (they have many types) is Tom Douglas' Rub with Love. His pork and seafood rubs are fantastic. Still use his seafood for grilling shrimp. But most of the time is my own rub.

    Jerry, I googled "Rub With Love", the website opened and I placed an order. However, the stuff I received came in a tube, was very slick and smelled like strawberries. Quite frankly, I don't think it would be very good on my meat, uhhh I mean, my prime rib.:rofl:
