Thanksgiving 2022
« on: Nov 22, 2022, 06:44 PM »
Our first turkey day down here in FL.
Invited my neighbor and her daughter.
Also my brother David and his wife Chris; however, she declined.  They have had a very rough go of it since Ian.  Whatever.

Anyway, I have a 16# turkey and began brining it tonight.

What do you use as a brine?

Nothing standard Dom.
What I mean to say is that I've had success with any packaged brine I buy that was on sale.
But there are tons of brine recipes on line.
The one I used on this turkey is WorldMarket Turkey Brine.





I had heard about brines over the years.
It was the other guys on DSO that convinced me to give it a try years ago.
I will never cook an un-brined turkey.
The difference is day and night.
It's like if you used an injector, without the unevenness of injecting - more flavor near the injector points and less the further away you get from the injector points.
The juiciness from brining is crazy.
I have always preferred dark meat over white; the white always was too dry.
But not on a brined bird.

Give it a try.
There is still time.
12-24 hrs is all they typically recommend.
I always do it for 1.5-2 days.

Sounds good. 
 I do mostly injections with butter and broth.  With a mix of rub stuff on the outside..

These days I let my Daughter cook the Turkey. She’s not the worlds best cook but I try to encourage her. She’s more into take out.

My son on the other hand is a serious cook although he leans towards deserts more than he should. He’ll get my cookware when I’m gone.

I just finished making the butternut squash.
The sweet potatoes are peeled and boiling now.

Between periods I peeled the white taters and got them into pan to boil.

I’ll mash them after the game.

Mixed a 2nd drink too.
Reposado and peach tea.
