      Shortly after Di posted this Brine recipe I used it on a buffalo roast and it did wonders in making it juicy and tender. Last night I bbq'd a half turkey that had been in my freezer since Christmas. I used this brine and marinated the bird for 28 hours - everyone agreed that they had never tasted a moister, better bird. Thank-you again Di you have made a believer out of me!

      I used this recipe to brine my Thanksgiving Turkey and I just wanted to say that it is the only way that I will be roasting my birds from now on. I followed your instructions to the letter only I had a 20lb bird so I did double the brine. This was absolutely the most flavorful, juiciest bird that ever graced my kitchen. I let it rest 30 minutes before carving and it sliced like a dream. Thank you Di! And I apoligize as I thought I had already reviewed!

      Kept forgetting to rate this, Excellent! I couldnt make a roast unless it was a pot roast to have it turn out tender. This recipe made the perfect beef roast, I plan on trying it with lots of other meats.
