I will experiment with new brines when it is Mrs kc and myself but when guests are involved I always go back to Smokin Okies Holiday brine. I guess you could also say it is undefeated in all the other brines I've tried to see if I could find one better.

I cast my vote for Smokin Okie !
I also use the simple approach of the "Simple Brine" ½ cup Kosher salt, ½ cup sugar to 1 gallon water and crack a hand full of pepper corns to toss in the mix.

I give my vote to Smokin Okies. Delicious. Also, unofficially, my family votes for it as well. So that is an extra 6 votes. The newborn counts too, right?

Ratios for 1 Gallon of water

1/2 c kosher salt
1/4 c brown sugar
5 bay leaves
5 cloves garlic - crushed
25 whole pepper corns
3 whole allspice
1 Tbsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried onion chips
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp dried savory
1 tsp celery seed

Bring to a boil.
Remove from heat after 30 min
add enough ice to double the volume.
wait until ice dissolves and check temps. add more ice until the water temp is 50 degrees

Submerge the bird and top with additional ice as needed and refrigerate.

I start brining 48 hours prior to cook.
at T-12 pull bird from brine, rinse, pat dry and place in a large tray. cover with foil and refrigerate until time to cook.

If the wife don't want me to brine her turkey, I'm doin' my own.....

Haven't brined a lot of stuff, but this Smokin' Okie's thing I've been hearing about ever since I've been here (TSR)......
Got plenty of particulars, thanks to KAM & others &
ALSO Thanks to everyone for puttin' up the alternative concoctions, those all look pretty good too !!!!

PS: Vote 1st, ask questions later dept. ~~~>
I voted for SO's HTB, just 'cause I know I can trust a LOT of the viewpoints around here.....

I usually fry my turkeys in Peanut oil, but last year I tried Smokin Okies brine on a 15lb bird, cooked on a WSM. Came out fantastic! This year I'm gonna try Aliens brine (in addition to a fried bird) for Christmas.
