Still trying to get my brine mixture right. Anyone want to share their preferred ratio of kosher salt and baking soda?

I don't get the bleach either. And what is 1/2 cup of salt going to do for you?
Step 1. Hydro-gut
Step 2. Brine
2 boxes kosher salt, 1 box baking soda, box of ice, and enough saltwater to make a nice slush.
Let them sit over night, then package and freeze.
Some people coat them with syrup before freezing, but it makes a mess.
My grandfather used to add Formaldehyde, but I've never used it.
Formaldehyde never helped the looks of my Grandfather when he was in his coffin. ;-)
No, but I bet you could troll him for 3 days without his belly blowing out
(Hope that wasn't over the line). Good to see you posting Don - I've learned alot from you the last few years.
