How to Brine a Turkey

by Marcia Curtis Bailey

This is for a 13 to 14 lb turkey
6 quarts hot water
1 lb kosher salt
1lb brown sugar
5 lbs ice
I use one of those Gatorade drink coolers
Pour water salt and sugar in container. Stir until dissolved. Submerge cleaned turkey in liquid being sure he or she is totally covered in the liquid. Cover with ice and leave 8 to 16 hours. Remove and pat dry. Let sit at room temp for at least 30 minutes. Cook to perfection!
