Brining- continue after removing from brine?

michaeljc70 | Jan 11, 2012 01:48 PM

If I want to brine pork for 10 hours, do I have to start the time exactly from before when I am going it cook it? In other words, if I did it 18 hours in advance for convenience and then after 10 hours took it out of the brine and rinsed it, would it continue to brine since there is still solution in the meat?

I am worried about the pork becoming to hammy if that makes any sense. I've had that happen if I over brine pork.
