Harold Import Company Brining Bags {GIVEAWAY}–CLOSED

When you hear the phrase, “Bar-B-Que” what comes to mind? If it’s hot dogs and burgers, chances are you grew up on the West Coast. If it’s ribs, brisket and maybe a smoked turkey, chances are you’re from the South. I’m a California girl myself, but we lived in Georgia for two years and I was so confused the first time we showed up at a church “Bar-B-Que” and there were no hot dogs! Even after our stint in the South, I still equate “BBQ” with burgers and dogs, but after tasting some of the delicacies the South has to offer in the way of BBQ, I have definitely broadened my horizons. Today’s giveaway from Harold Import Company will surely do that for you, too.

I was sent an Elizabeth Karmel’s Grill Friends Brining Bag made by HIC, Harold Import Co. What’s a Brining Bag, you ask? Don’t worry, I had to ask, too. Well, a Brining Bag is basically a giant, heavy-duty zippered bag that allows you to brine a chicken or turkey before grilling or roasting. What’s a brine? Glad you asked. A brine is simply boiled water, salt and some type of sweetener (brown sugar, maple syrup, etc.) that helps flavor your meat and helps it to retain moisture so it’s nice and juicy when it’s done.

 The bag  was thick and sturdy and I never once worried that it would leak–even when I filled it with two gallons of brine and an eight pound chicken! The plastic Sealing Zipper helped ensure the bag was completely secure and made it easy to close.  There are recipes and detailed instructions included with the bag so doing the brining (which was foreign to me) was a cinch! Here’s me with my chicken in the brine, ready to sit in the fridge for 18 hours.

I put our chicken in the fridge at 10 pm Friday night and got it out to grill at 4 pm on Saturday.  Here it is, ready to be grilled.

The grilling time for the chicken was the same as cooking it in an oven; about 11-13 minutes per pound. The instructions said to grill it in a disposable pan for the first 30 minutes and then transfer it to the grill. Ours got a little Cajun style on the wings and the bottom because apparently our grill has some powerful flames, but overall the cooking was easy and flawless.

Look at that beautiful bird! Thanks to our Grill Thermometer, we knew right when the chicken had reached its proper internal temperature and was ready to be served. If you have questions about grilling and grilling methods, check out Elizabeth Karmel’s blog, GirlsAtTheGrill.com.

Ta-Da! See the juices coming out of the bird, even after being in a BBQ for an hour and a half? That’s all thanks to the Brining process. The result was a deliciously moist and flavorful chicken that my family ate right up! Is your mouth watering just looking at that picture? Then you should enter to win a brining bag for yourself! Think of what your hubby would say if you grilled him a tender, juicy turkey for Father’s Day!

 

THREE lucky winners will get a Brining Bag so you, too, can grill a delicious Turkey or Chicken and impress your friends and family!

The day of turkey has come and gone, but that doesn’t mean it’s gone gone. We had two turkeys this year. One that my uncle picked up fresh from the turkey farm (like he does every year for my mom to cook) and the other that my brother deep fried.

I had never tried deep fried turkey before and I’ve gotta say it was quite dandy tasting.

Two turkeys means lots of leftovers that are eaten for days upon days. Do you have a few too many turkey leftovers??? Carissa over at Good n Crazy has some really great ideas HERE for what to do with all that turkey.

Now to figure out what to do with all the pie…
