Spritz sound great,,,, I do mine with Spiced rum and apple juice,, will have to give yours a try,,Thanks
A full smoker is a happy smoker
I made this a second time where I had no weather and temp issues and it was killer! I brined, dried, gave it a little rub under and on oiled skin. I have yet to inject, but I am sure it would be great. I would go light on the injection, the brine and rub make it pretty tasty as is.
This brine works just fine on them enhanced birds. Be bout all ya can get anymore. Actually, the brine helps ta wash out some a that cheap salty enhancer an replace it with flavor.
The 3 recipes were designed tagether, but don't need ta all be used ifin ya don't wanna. Many times the brine an a good rub be fine. Sometimes a bit a spritz be nice. If ya want a bit spicer bird add in the injection. Really be all about personal taste an choice.
I gave up on finding the "pure" turkey a while ago. I looked and looked and had to go with the enhanced ones. they seem to work pretty well. Maybe they are more prevalent in some state we don't live in or if you hunt them your self :).
Howdy and thanks for the recipes! I know this is an older thread but I have sort of the reverse of this question -- I won't need a full 1.5 gallons of brine. Could I cut everything in half (including salt and spices) and still be in balance? Just checking.......
