How to brine a whole turkey or chicken
Featured Pinch Tips Video
Heat all your ingredients (except garlic and onion)up in a large stockpot until salt is dissolved, I always use an entire tub of table salt (dont worry, its not salty!)
Place your heated mixture over your turkey in a clean ice box, cover everything with ice. I leave the neck and giblets in the turkey.
close the box, leave it alone for 24 hours.
