How long is too long to brine a turkey breast?
I will be smoking two breasts that are about 10 pounds each. They are probably about 85% frozen. I was planning on putting them on late tomorrow night. Is 24 hours too long to leave them in the brine?
It's about right, I do pork butts 12-24 hours depending on when I eat, I do whole chickens 12 hours, usually do whole turkeys 24 breast is smaller but not significant so you could either A reduce time, or be reduce salt (not too much though)
For that size, 24 hours is fine with a 5-6% salt brine.
This is my signature line just so you're not confused.
