I have tried a plain brine once before but this was much better. I used a fresh turkey for the first time and, because my turkey was 22 pounds, I did not have a pot big enough. I used a large kitchen trash bag to hold the brine against the turkey better, and then put the bag with the turkey's tail up in the pot. It was a good thing I did because it did get a pin hole leak so I will use a heavy duty bag next year. For extra flavor I also rubbed oil and a mixture of herbs (sage, thyme, paprika, salt and pepper) all over the bird, including the cavity and under the skin and I put all the items from the brine back in the cavity. I barbequed the turkey for about 4 hours till the multiple poppers popped up. (I always use at least three). Everyone said it was the best, most tender, juiciest turkey they've had.
