As of 2015, Amazon, Bed Bath & Beyond and Williams-Sonoma sell brining bags online. Price, availability and selection of brine bags vary by merchant and location.
Cooks use brining bags to submerge meats in a brine solution in order to infuse the meat with moisture and flavor. Generally, brine bags consist of sealable, heavy-weight plastic designed to avoid leakage.
Brining is an ideal preparation method for meats that dry out easily, such as turkey and pork chops, since the brining process tenderizes the meat and locks in juiciness. The amount of brine, the size of the brining container and the length of brining time depends on the amount and type of meat an individual wishes to brine. Even though some manufacturers label their brining bags for use with turkeys, cooks can use them for any meat that suits the bag's capacity.
While Amazon operates its business predominately online, Bed Bath & Beyond and Williams-Sonoma manage retail locations. Bed Bath & Beyond's website provides a Find in Store tool that allows customers to reserve products online for in-store purchase, depending on availability. Customers can call individual Williams-Sonoma stores to inquire about local brine bag availability. To locate a local Williams-Sonoma store, customers can use the Store Locator on the company's website by clicking on Stores on the main page.
