Right now, I have a 12 lb. fresh turkey brining in this solution.[p] 2 gal. vegetable stock
2 c. kosher salt
1 c. brown sugar
1/2 c. Old Bay seasoning
2 tbsp. black peppercorns
2 tbsp. red pepper flakes
1 tbsp. crushed juniper berries[p]I'm going to keep it in the brine for 24 hours, then smoke on the egg at 350* until I have a breast temp of 161*. If anyone's interested, I'll post the results late Saturday afternoon.

    I agree with Painter, please post the results. I believe there is always someone that may not post but would like to know the results. (Including myself)
