Think of it as a “spa day” for your dinner.
Whether you use a really large pot or one of the heavy-duty leak proof brining bags in your roaster, let your turkey soak in a bath of salt and seasonings the night before Thanksgiving gives extra flavor and moisture to poultry. The goal is to have the white meat every bit as moist as the dark meat. Those who have discovered brining either love the pre-mixed brine or end up creating their own recipes. Some combine brown sugar, salt and peppercorns in water, while others take it to the next level and substitute bourbon for the water.
