Brining a turkey is a simple process, but you need to start a day before you plan to cook. A whole turkey can take up to 24 hours to properly brine depending on the size so plan ahead. Brining makes the most of a turkey. It adds moisture to the meat and makes it more tender. Throw in some herbs and spices and you get a lot more flavor as well. All you really need to brine a turkey is the bird and some salt and water. Step one is determining how much water you need.

Great list of Turkey brines! I consider brining a turkey a “Must do” for the grill, packs in so much more flavor and helps keep it juicy. Nothing worse than a dry Turkey at the table.
