I love a brined turkey. When you think about cooking any poultry for more than two hours, you definitely want a bird that was packed in a saline solution or brined yourself. Never again will you have a dry turkey. The osmosis will make your bird tender and juicy. This recipe is good for turkeys between 12 and 22 pounds. Roast as desired.
The nutrition data for this recipe includes the full amount of the brine ingredients. The actual amount of the brine consumed will vary.
Always brine foods in a food-grade, non-reactive container such as a stainless steel or enameled stockpot, a brining bag, or a food-grade plastic bucket. Never use ordinary trash bags, plastic trash cans, or metal buckets or containers not meant for food use.
