Alton Brown Shares How To Brine A Turkey

November 10, 2011

This video is the one that changed my life.

Ok, it changed the way I make turkey at least. Although my recipe is now a little bit different, Alton showed how and why brining the turkey works, which led to my experimentation. You can use his simple explanation, and create your own signature flavor. 

Finally, tell your husband to turn off the deep fryer, you got this.

When building a brine....can we also add something like apple cider to the vegetable stock?
