first time brining turkey breast

I also was scared to try soaking bird in salt water all night! So I covered my back side brined one 6.5 breast 8 hrs. stuffed with oranges and apples slices. My second 6.5 breast did traditional way of dry rubs,apple juice etc. I also tried pecan wood this yr. Well fellow eggheads I am now a true believer in the power of kosher salt. My traditional breast was good,but when I compared to brined bird no contest. Brined bird was much juicer,even the color was a little different. I used 1.5 cups salt, will probably cut back to only 1 cup. I believe!
