    StreetChef's Note:

    A great marinating process that tenderizes the meat of the turkey. It creates a moist, juicy and well-seasoned turkey. No need to cook the brine.

      This is the brine I've been looking for!! I misplaced the copy of the brine recipe that we have used for years. My husband and I will only cook a turkey this way. I add 1 cut lemon and a few smashed garlic cloves to it too. THANK YOU!!!!
