    I am brining a small pork shoulder now according to the recipe…I am a little! worried about your comment on Food 52 that it was way too salty!!

    Thanks, everyone!

    Mary, I’d suggest *not* brining for the full 24 hours. I still don’t know how long A+M brined their roast for when they tested the recipe, but 24 hours was way too much time in our case. I will say that the only real issue we had was with the saltiness – the other flavors in the brine were absolutely lovely. Good luck!

    Love the diner pics!

    Any opinion about Providence Palate shutting down? Sad for those guys, but it never quite lived up to its promise because I think PVD is a tough sell sometimes. The audience is there, but where is the commitment? Maybe PVD folks don’t have the disposable income these days to support all the local food outlets.
