Brine should be cold, not room temp. Either use half water to dissolve the salt and half ice to cool it down, or stick the cooling brine in the fridge or outside till its close to fridge temp.

Did a whole turkey breast a few weeks ago as a test run (I'm new to smoking have just moved the 'burbs this summer). I brined it for a day and then rinsed it off and let it sit on the shelf in the fridge for a few hours to dry off the skin. Smoked over applewood in my Weber Smokey Mountain at about 275-300 degrees, probalby closer to 275 most of the time. Took maybe 2 hours to hit 154 degrees which is as high as I would take a turkey breast. The meat was awesome but the skin was pretty rubbery I think to get halfway decent skin you need to get the smoker a bit higher, closer to 325 or finish over direct heat on a grill or under a broiler. For thanksgiving, I'm going to try a higher temp and also use more wood, turkey can take a lot of smoke.
Also may opt to go for the smoked turkey leg thing, like at Disney world. No clue how to do that yet but if I see some turkey legs in the supermarket in the next 3 weeks, I'm going to try it out. I know you need to cure those using pink salt (which I have) to get the hammy taste.
I also saved the carcass of the turkey breast and made a smoked turkey stock out of it. Just cover the bones with water, bring to a boil and then turn it down and simmer for 1-2 hrs. Can't decide if i'll use that to make turkey gravy or to make something like a smoked gumbo.

If he received an inpermissable benefit (reduced rent, etc.) it certainly can impact his eligibility. If it was a violation of NJ high school rules regarding his recruitment to Don Bosco but the lease was legal and the rent was reasonable, then it wouldn't impact his eligibility

Your point being? You think head-to-head is the sole measuring stick? Maybe Arizona shouldn't have lost to a bad USC team. If Arizona was ranked higher due solely to head to head, the ranking would be a joke.
Oregon - Good out of conference schedule (based on one team but still). best win 1-loss MSU, 2nd best win 2-loss UCLA. only loss was to 1-loss Arizona
Arizona - terrible out of conference schedule. best win at 1-loss Oregon, 2nd best win Cal? only loss was to 3 -loss USC at home.
Resumes aren't remotely close

I think they did a pretty good job of not buying the hype/pre-season polls. Based on my quick look, they balanced "good losses" with "good wins"
Ole Miss is in over Bama not just head to head but because Bama's best win is over a 6-2 WV team and I'm glad to see they didn't reflexively put Bama in at 4.
Bama, ND and MSU all have similar losses and you could argue that MSU should be over Bama as their best win is over 1-loss and number 15 ranked Nebraska whereas Bama's best win is over 2-loss and 20th ranked WV.
ND is below them all as their best win is over a 3 loss Stanford team.

Well do you consider Rutgers, Utah or Minnesota to be teams that "look that great"?

Actually its more like PSU has a real, competent defense matched with their crappy offense. We have the crappy offense but lack anything remotely resembling a competent defense
|4 days 15 hours ago||So we are arrogant because||
So we are arrogant because you are our big rival dammit and will prove it? This exact sentiment is why we don't consider you to the level of OSU. You have such an inferiority complex and have to relate everything to UM. You have had tremendous success the last few years yet still have an obsession with what we consider you. This wah-wah, we deserve to be considered a big rival and you have to notice us!!!!! is just amusing and reinforcing the commonly held thought. i just don't get it.
Not to mention, your coach stooped to the level of insulting the height of someone on the opposing team. Real classy when a grown man has to personnally insult a 20 year old because he said mean things about our program.

Congrats Hoke. Just when I thought you couldn't embarrass us amy further you go ahead and apologize like this and totally prove otherwise. Our performance on the football field is now not the most embarrassing thing we have done this weekend.

I agree that it's his shtick now but someone should call him out on it. Instead of the media fawning over his attitude.

An apology makes us look even worse. Poor baby Dantonio got mad over nothing. Hoke should've told Dantonio to enjoy the fucking victory but he won't apologize cause we did nothing wrong. Of course we look fucking pathetic for getting our ass whooped and then apologizing cause Dantonios vagina was offended by a motivational ploy

Who gives a shit. If it wasn't the spike Dantonio would come up wth some other bs. For some reason he refuses to act like a successful team and has some deep seeded need to play "underdog" or disrespected. The media loves making a story about nothing.

You mean kept running the ball. The entire stadium knew what they were doing yet we are too pathetic to stop them. Flashbacks of the Wisconsin game in the RR era. We deserved to get scored on if we can't stop a simple running play when we knew it is happening.

Did you watch the fucking Minnesota game? Our O today looked a lot better against a much tougher D than we did against Minnesota. And that isn't saying much considering how atrocious we were today.

Are you for real? As bad as some of his play has been Devin at least gives us the only chance we have. what has Shane shown in any of his appearances to make you think that he is even remotely capable right now? Hoke has done nothing to improve Gardner or Morris.

Ridiculous revisionist history. Our d was historically bad (sadly exactly like of offense now) and our vaunted offense was nothing in big games. The last two games against OSU and miss st were disgracefully bad and he has no chance of coming back after those.

Nothing. He has zero chance of coming back next year and we look worse every week. We are barely a D1 team. Even though it means little, have to prove this is unacceptable. Cut the cord.
