    This weekend I'm thinking of doing some chicken pieces (thighs, drumsticks, etc) and also some turkey legs.  Any reason why I can't or should not combine them into a single brine?

       Ravenelli,IMO, I would see no reason you could not do this;however you should wash each piece well before adding to the Brine.[​IMG]

       Now if you had whole birds,I would most certainly go seperate.`Hopes this helps , someone else will chime in shortly to add to the confusion[​IMG],Until then...

    No reason that i know of that you can't brine in the same container.

    I have done chicken legs in w/ a turkey.

     Legs went on the grill for snacks while the big bird was smoking.

    I agree. I don't see any reason you can't brine them together.
