    Brining 101 Osmosis:


    Meat already contains salt water. By immersing meats into a liquid with a higher concentration of salt the liquid is absorbed into the meat. Any flavoring added to the brine will be carried into the meat with the saltwater mixture. And because the meat is now loaded with extra moisture it will stay that way longer while it cooks.​

    I got this off the 'net somewhere...

    Makes 9-12 brownies

    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup butter, melted
    3/4 cup flour
    1/2 cup cocoa

    In a bowl, beat sugar, eggs, vanilla, and salt. Add butter, beat until blended. Combine flour and cocoa in separate bowl, than gradually add to sugar mixture. Mix well. Transfer to microwave safe 8 inch dish. Microwave uncovered on high for 3-4 minutes, or until brownie sticks to your finger when touched. Eat while watching your happy flock free range.
    Note: very good when made gluten-free.

    TIP- if you have a place you want to put your bator but there is a window, heating vent, AC, etc close by, make a shield out of boards and a sheet.

    A few NOTES:
    GOing to drill a hole in it and screw to the back of the cooler.
    I already used it to watch chicks hatch and to pull up to look at a chicks bottom under the light!
    That use i didnt have in mind but it sure works great having the light right there when needed!!

    My tip is making a candler by attaching a modified toilet paper roll to a flashlight.
