    Turkey Brine

    My previous thread is dashed on the dreaded shoals of thread drift. I shall share my secret brine with ye' who dare.

    40 Hour Turkey Brine - 12 to 14 lb Turkey

    1/2 gallon apple cider
    1 gallon water
    8 cloves of garlic
    1 large onion chopped
    3/4 sea salt
    1 pound brown sugar
    6 Bay leaves

    Combine ingredients and heat until salt & sugar dissolved. Place turkey in food safe container (I use a large water cooler) and pour brine over turkey. Store in a refrigerator for 24 hours. After soak, remove and pat dry followed by oil rub and seasoning.

    The 40 Hour term is for name recognition only.

        Is that 3/4 of the Great Salt Lake, or more like the Salton Sea... it seems to be a bit much.



          You guys really go overboard.

          I drizzle either melted bacon fat or olive oil on my bird and throw poultry seasoning on it and a little pepper.

          Everyone who has eaten my bird, loves it!

          But the stuffing is the best part and the most well liked.
