Recipe by Eric
"Simple overnight brine that will make any turkey moist and tasty. You can use this recipe for turkeys in the 15 to 20-pound range. Brining works best for fresh turkeys; you should definitely not brine any turkey that is already injected with a 'solution.'"

This is my second attempt at brining. Once you get the hang of it(like most things) ....it's so simple! My daughter doesn't usually like turkey because it's usually dry. But after the first turkey .....she was like "MoM! You have to make it like this FOREVER" it was so good. Can't wait to see how this one comes out. Thanks for the garlic idea too!
I also included 1 tbs. oregano and 3 cloves of garlic. Perfect turkey.
Love this! Nuff said!
Good stuff. We soaked our bird in this for about 24 hours. I rubbed olive oil on the turkey and put black pepper on it before I indirect grilled it on my Weber kettle grill. Absolutely fantastic!
