my recipe is 24 cups of water 3 3/4 cups of Kosher Salt and 4 cups of sugar. Couple bay leaves, some garlic and a few cloves. Boil it all just until its all dissolved. Put turkey in a bag or big tub with ice and then pour in the brine and let sit for 12-18 hours.
I know it sounds funky, I thought same thing. Google the process and you will get hundreds of brine recipes.
Have a great thanksgiving.
sounds like a nice brine. what is your recipe for the oven (assuming you roast it).
I picked up a turkey to make after thanksgiving. we always go to family and I never have very much leftover turkey. I love turkey so i figured I would make one this weekend.
I smoked one a couple years ago with apple and hickory but didn't much care for it.
