Brine at Butterball?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My wife bought the Thanksgiving Turkey yesterday at the store and I had forgotten to tell her to make sure she bought one that reads it is a "Natural Turkey" as I am going to brine it before I smoke it next week.  She bought a Butterball, and I believe they add some sort of flavoring solution to their birds so I am wondering what this will do to my brining process.  Should I reduce the brine?  Eliminate it?  There may already be a post out there on this subject, and if so, I kindly request someone link me to it.  Thanks.

This will help you out, Brine and Injections are similar ways to get the job done...JJ   http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/t/113220/turkey-8-solution-injected#post_715310

I can't find a bird around here that isn't pre-injected at the factory. I still brine mine either way. It may not be the same as brining a natural bird but it still adds flavor and helps it come out juicy in my opinion.

I brine them too. It does make a difference even on an enhanced bird.
