    This recipe is off of the foodnetwork.com site. I have made a maple brined turkey before and it was absolutely delicious. Not sweet, not salty but very moist. Posted this recipe so I wouldn't lose it again!

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Place all the ingredients, except the turkey, in a large pot and bring to a boil, stirring until the salt dissolves. Remove from the heat and let cool.
    2. 2
      Line a large stockpot with an unscented garbage bag and put the turkey into the pot. Pour the cooled brine over the bird, close and seal the bag, and refrigerate overnight.
    3. 3
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the turkey from the brine, dry well, and discard the brine.
    4. 4
      Roast the turkey as you normally would, approximately 15 minutes a pound. Let stand for 30 minutes before carving.
