Brining brisket for corned beef

golpher247 | Jan 24, 2012 02:25 PM

I'm planning making some corned beef in a couple of weeks so I'm going to brine the brisket before the cook day. I've heard that it should be done for at least ten days before. However, I'm not going to be around for ten days before so I'm wondering if I could do it for 2 weeks before.

Would two weeks be too long for corned beef? What damage could I do to the meat?

Thanks in advance for your help.
