That's true! Although I still like to brine myself. Making a nice homemade brine is really nice and you can make it completely you own, which is what I like.
I typically make savory brines with lots of herb and garlic, but sweet ones can be good as well with sugar, juices or any other flavor.
Just make sure that whatever you put into the brine has water soluable flavours, or you just end up pouring them down the sink.
(some will stick to the surface, but not much... better to rub or slather them on)
