or so says my wife...
I took a turkey from the freezer last night and popped it in the fridge to do up on the egg this weekend.[p]I know there has been tons of brine talk and It`s been probably beaten down but I would like to try a simple brine solution...
Has anyone got a simle one they would share?
I did a Turkey at xmas but without the brine process...[p]15 minutes per pound @ 350º right?[p]Thanks...

    [ul][li]Turkey Brine[/ul]
  • Mop, I just did a turkey breast last Sunday that knocked our socks off. Brined for 24 hr in a simple mixture of 1 cup kosher salt and 1 cup of brown sugar to a gallon of water. I smoked with apple chips, cooked with aid of 3 fire bricks at 350° as you said, but rely on your probe in the breast @ 165°.

  • Mop,[p]Here's the brine recipe I used for my Thanksgiving turkey. Turned out great![p]1/2 gallon water
    1/2 gallon apple juice or cider
    1 cup Kosher salt
    1.5 cups sugar (I used 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar)
    5 Bay leaves crushed
    10-20 tellecherry peppercorns. [p]Brine overnite and smoke over your
    favorite wood
