No matter how you cook your turkey, roast, smoke, deep fry, whatever, soak it first in this turkey brine. This brine locks in moisture for a plump and juicy bird. Plus, it pre-seasons the turkey so you don’t really need to later!
Ever since I could remember the whole family would pack up and go to Nanny’s house for Thanksgiving dinner for the huge family reunion. Nanny’s turkey was my only basis for comparison my whole life until I began cooking turkey for myself. Both mine and Nanny’s tasted fine, but I always caught myself going for second helpings of gravy just to help get the dry meat down.
