Go to the "search" format at the top of the Smoke Ring Forum

Click on "Search" and type in turkey+brine...403 responses appear regarding turkey ,brining, etc.

Look especially for Smokin' Okie's Brining 101...

Personally like a standard brine of:
1 cup sugar
1 cup salt
1 gallon water
8 pounds [ 1 gallon ] ice
then I add about :
1/4 cup granulated garlic
1/4cup granulated onion
1/2 cup dried basil
Brine overnight in cooler. If you have room for the pot in a fridge, simply use water, no ice.

I keep it simple because I roast my birds in a pan with the giblets, cover them when just about done for pulling, no cover if slicing, then make a lightly smokey gravy with the drippings. If its for pulling [ I vend them this way ], I simply put the meat back in the drippings. I use the giblets [and some of the drippings] in my stuffing, diced fine. Did 100 pounds of birds like this on Monday - went over great...Just had turkey a-la-king for dinner with what little was left Cool

+1 (Gazillion Laughing ). Tried it for the first time 2 years ago and was blown away by the great taste. I never figured a flavored brine would have that much of an impact on taste (vs an injection) and I was very wrong. Good stuff!

I always figured brining was kind of cheating. Rolling Eyes Maybe it is, I no longer care. Every bird I cook is now brined if I have a say so in it. While the flavor and juiciness is the main reason, it also extends the window of hitting your internal temp number. No brainer...Smokin' Okie's

For those that used Okie's brine, did you use the mayo as suggested for the rub? I also saw that he suggests using a butter soaked cheese cloth and applying the rub underneath the loose skin.
