    That was a fine looking bird. What kind of wood did you use?

    how long is it safe to soak an unrefrigerated bird for? does the salt in the brine keep it from turning sour? I sure don't have place in my frig for a 5 gallon pail. or am i missing something?[​IMG]

    The turkey needs to be kept cold. Some people have extra refrigerator space. If you've got a big enough cooler you could probably pack it in ice and then keep it covered.

    The turkey I did already had about 10% "flavor solution" added so I didn't brine mine.

    Hope this helps.

    GOT smoke - Mighty nice looking bird, thanks for sharing.

    Don O - I keep a separate Gott cooler for brining, has a lid and is insulated to keep the birds cold. Cold temp is usually needed for safety reasons and good brining.
