Best brine for smoked turkey around. This recipe was given to me by my uncle. He is always smoking meat. This recipe uses canning or koser salt, not table salt. Using table salt in this amount will make the brine too salty.
In a large bucket or container large enough to hold your turkey, mix together the water, salt, garlic, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Stor in refrigerator, and soak turkey for 2 days before smoking or roasting.
