I BRINED A BUTTERBALL TURKEY - it was too late to turn back because I had not read all of the reviews about brining a BB turkey. I am sooooo glad that I did it. Now I did not use the brining ingredients in this recipe because I had already purchased a brining kit (with a bag) at the grocery store and used that, but I did follow the rest of this recipe. I did stuff it, but the stuffing came out so wet that it was almost unservable until my husband said to mix it in the the extra batch that always goes in the oven and Wow, that made the stuffing even better too. I did do the upside down thing and it was not fun turning a 22 pound stuffed hot turkey, but we managed and in the end, it turned out to be the best turkey any of us have ever had. No one could get over how moist and flavorful it was. The brine kit that I used was from Fire & Flavor and they do have a website FIREANDFLAVOR.COM. It was not too salty and I will never do a turkey again without brining it. Perfect turkey is right!!!
