This was my first time using a brine. I used this for my 20 lb turkey (doubled recipe) on Thanksgiving. Everyone had their doubt and really did not think they would like the turkey BUT they LOVED IT. We had 15 people eating and there was very little leftovers.
Since I doubled the recipe I used 1 gallon chicken stock and 1 gallon of Apple Juice and 2 cups of sea salt. I put the turkey in a big food grade bucket (found at Walmart) and kept it outside over night (cold enough to keep it cool). I cooked it at 500 for 30 minutes then turned the temp down to 325 for 3 hours and it was perfect!!!!
