    I'm picky about putting uncovered food in the fridge so I always cover and have the same affect.

    Weird, mine is never as white as the top one. My guess would be oxygen.

    I never bother covering. I think oxygen exposure causes the color change. Kinda like when you bloom sausage.

    ...and should I be covering the butts? This is my beverage and meat refrigerator (garage) so no chance of the meat touching other food.

    Pork Butt Color After Dry Brining

    I've noticed the change in color after dry brining my pork butts. I use Morton's kosher salt, fairly heavy, for 2 days, uncovered in the refrigerator. I'm curious as to why the meat color changes. Is the myoglobin pulled to the surface? Here are before and after photos.
