Stomach viruses take longer to develop but usually go away in about 24 to 28 hours after symptoms begin. Food poisoning often lasts longer.

How do you cut a truffle?

Does brining make meat salty?
Is the finished product going to be saltier because you brined? Nope. Brine's saline content has nothing to do with how salty the finished product will be, it's way more scientific than that. Salinity, depending on its strength, partially dissolves meat's muscle fiber (that which makes it tough), making it tender.
Do you keep the lid on a barbecue?
With a gas grill, keeping the lid down will hold in heat, bringing up temperatures quickly. Every time you open the lid you vent all the built-up heat from the grill and slow the cooking process. It is usually best to leave the lid down as much as possible on your gas grill since grilling is best done fast and hot.
