    I am going to brine my own brisket and wanted to know if anyone else has done it?
    Should I buy saltpeter(sodium nitrate)? All it really does is keep the meat pink. Any additions to pickling spice?

    I'm going to keep the fat cap and roast the brined meat, not a fan of the boil process. Especially for the leftovers.

    I've been planning on following this recipe and hope to actually execute my plan this year! I love Alton Brown so I'm confident that it'll be good!

    We do our corned beef/cabbage in teh pressure cooker. Never felt a particular reason to change. Always just get one from the store, though I'll be very curious how yours turns out. Keep us informed. Fvck, now I can't wait for St. Patties. :drool:

    That is the recipe I have been eyeing up, as I said above I am not sure about boiling the meat.

    I ended up doing this with a beef round, i made hash with half of the meat. Pretty tasty.
