As easy as 1, 2, Boss: How to Brine a Turkey

We know trying new things can be scary, and we all have about 9 million questions when we do! But, fear not my friends!
We’ve got you covered this Thanksgiving with this simple “How To” for brining your big bird.

Ingredients:
  • 1 Gallon Water
  • 32oz Chicken Stock
  • 2 Bay Leaves
  • 1 Teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • 1 Cup Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Packet Poultry Herb Blend(optional) Like this!
  • 1 Tablespoon Crystallized Ginger Check out this option
  • 1 Tablespoon Whole Black Peppercorns
Prep:
  1. Boil ALL ingredients in a large pot. 
  2. Once all of the sugar and salt is dissolved, shock the pot with ice water and refrigerate until cool. 
  3. a.Shocking the pot: add about a half-gallon of ICE water and then refrigerate until cold. Allow the mixture to get below 40°F before adding the brine to the turkey!
  4. Once the brine has cooled, add it to a cooler, or a bucket, with your turkey.
  5. a.Make sure your turkey has been cleaned prior to this! (Mental note.)
    b.Add water to your bucket until the bird is submerged. 
  6. Brine Turkey for 1 hour per pound. So, a 12 pound turkey should be brined for 12 hours.
  7. Bam! Success, like a Boss.
