    For poultry I like Emeril's brine. 

    • 1 cup salt
    • 1 cup brown sugar
    • oranges, quartered
    • 2 lemons, quartered
    • 6 sprigs thyme
    • 4 sprigs rosemary
    To make the brining solution, dissolve the salt and sugar in 2 gallons of cold water in a nonreactive container (such as a clean bucket or large stockpot, or a clean, heavy-duty, food grade plastic storage bag). Add the oranges, lemons, thyme, and rosemary

    I'm doing something similar with a pork loin tomorrow but using apple juice instead of lemons and oranges.
