Everybody's got their secrets, and chefs tend to guard theirs more closely than others. If you're looking for an undercover way to get your dishes tasting delectable, check out Sweetwater Spice Company, makers of seasoning and brine baths that make your food taste fantastic. Bathing your dish in brine adds juiciness and flavor that otherwise might be missed.
If you're looking to stick your next brisket full of flavor, check out the Ancho & Chipotle Brisket Bath. It blends the earthiness of smoked ancho chili peppers and smoky chipotle with apple juice, tamarind, and brown sugar. Because smoked brisket and meat tends to dry out after hours of cooking, adding brine mitigates that issue by adding juice directly into the meat. Inject it or smother it. However you apply the brine, it'll add a much-needed kick to your culinary creations.
