We begin the Brine process tonight, it's hands down the only way to do turkey. It comes out consistently moist and flavorful. Definitely 100% better than without.
We willl, take pics of the whole process.
Starting with the Brine which is as follows:
1 cup salt
1 cup brown sugar
2 lemons, quartered
4 tsp dry thyme
2 tsp rosemary
To make the brining solution, dissolve the salt and sugar in 2 gallons of cold water in a non-reactive container (such as a clean bucket or large stockpot, or a clean, heavy-duty, plastic garbage bag.) Add lemons, thyme, and rosemary.
Note: if you have a big turkey and need more brine than this, use 1/2 cup salt and 1/2 cup brown sugar for every gallon of water.
Well keep you posted as we go...with pics and the rest of the recipe.
