Ok bro, I didn’t plan on coming back to this quote of yours. But I’ve got to share a reply. I love brussel sprouts and it was a common side growing up. For years, my wife and I have halved, steamed, then browned them in bacon fat and it’s wonderful. Honestly, I’ve never heard of brining them in beer but I trusted your suggestion. I put them in a gallon bag and poured in a bottle of Bud Light. Guess what? I can hardly believe it but they soaked up 3/4s of it and turned out flawless when we roasted. Thanks for the tip bro!
