Hi All, I looked and could find what I wanted on many searches...so here it is. I have a smaller smoker and cook only for me and my wife. My cooks are usually on the smaller side comparatively to what I read on these forums. I have done a few cooks, but none with a wet brine. But I want to go there next weekend! So the question; for pork butt, turkey breast (never a whole), chicken, fish type wet brining - What size container should I buy? A 5 gal will be way too big. I found a square 18 qt that is 12x12x12 and seems about right? the next smaller is 9x9x9 and I can see that being big enough. Thanks for any input on this size question.
