"this turkey brine will impart incredible flavor to your bird and keep it moist no matter how long you cook it. The allspice berries give this recipe a unique and wonderful flavor, so depending on how much of this flavor you want you can add more or less berries. Kosher salt is the best option for any brine, but if you don't have any on hand substitute the 1 1/4 cup of kosher salt for 1 cup of table salt."

  1. Add all ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil, then take off the heat and let cool. Once cooled add your thawed turkey. Let the turkey sit in the brine overnight in the refrigerator. Turn the turkey over in the brine halfway through. When ready to cook, remove the turkey and pat dry but do not wash it off. Wipe oil onto the turkey's skin and add freshly ground black pepper. Cook and enjoy your brined turkey! This recipe will make enough to cover up to a 17 pound turkey.
