Hi WessB and All, I'm preparing for Canadian Thanksgiving this Monday. I'm following a combo of WessB/Mad Max/Topo Gigio method. I put my Turkey in a cooler and filled it with the brine from WessB website (that he got from the forum) I found that I had to triple the brine recipe to cover the bird. The recipe says to just add more water, but wouldn't that dilute the salt too much? Is tripling the brine going to make it too salty? (I have no experience with Brine)[p]Also, instead of adding ice cubes direct, I put them in a zip lock first so it wouldn't dilute the brine further.[p]Comments?
