There are more ways to prepare a turkey than the traditional way of just sticking it into an oven. One of the best ways to be able to create a fantastically juicy and succulent turkey is to brine it. Simply put, brining a turkey is something like marinating a turkey, but only more so. The purpose of brining is to increase the ability of the meat to hold onto its juices, which leads to a much moister and tasty bird than you would normally get. Here is a fantastic way to brine a turkey that will simply leave your mouth watering for more when you taste it.
Be aware that this recipe is for brining the turkey, not for cooking it. This is simply something extra that you can do before you cook the turkey to add flavor and juiciness to your bird. Once you have brined the turkey, you should be ready to cook your turkey as you normally would.
