How To Brine A Turkey For Thanksgiving Dinner
There are lots of ways to fix a turkey and everyone has their own favorite recipe. However, no matter what, you want to brine your turkey to keep it from becoming dry.
So what does it mean to 'brine' a turkey? Brine is a salt water solution that breaks down the connective tissue and adds flavor. The salt makes the water or moisture infuse into the turkey making it juicy.
You will need a big tub that the turkey plus some water will fit into.
You will also need:
- ice cubes
- bourbon (I'm liking this recipe already)
I hope that helps you out some this Thanksgiving. I wish everyone a safe and happy Thanksgiving day...now go eat that super juicy turkey!
