Our family's favorite way to do turkey! We have been making our Thanksgiving turkey with this recipe for years and it is always moist and delicious! The brine works well for chicken or pork too (cut the brine recipe in half). Make sure to use a good meat thermometer and do not over cook! While you still see recommendations to cook poultry to an internal thigh temperature of 180° to 185°, the USDA standards say 160° to 165° is safe. Preparation time does not include brine time.
