I've been using this brine for a few years. I have never had a more tender turkey. The white meat is as moist as the dark meat.REALLY!
I use a gallon bucket with the plastic turkey bags they sell in the store to cook them in. I don't like to do them in the bucket cause it is probably not healthy.
I mix the brine in warm water and put the frozen turkey in ans seal the top and store it in the extra fridge I have for a week. It doesn't have to be a week but I do that.
Three days would be plenty. Then I drain the brine out and rinse the turkey and put it back in the bag to cook it. It's a little salty if you brine it all week but we like that.
Also save all the drippings from this turkey the gravy is so good.
2 gallons water
1 1/2 cups canning or kosher salt
3 tablespoons minced garlic
1 tablespoon ground black pepper
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup brown sugar
Use a turkey roasting bag
