“Depending on size of turkey, you may need to proportionally increase the brine recipe. This recipe is for a 14 – 16 pound turkey. I use a 5 gallon plastic painter's bucket with a lid. Mine is bright orange and clearly labeled "Turkey Brinning Only" in a permanent marker so DH wont use it for his projects! Use only with fresh trukeys that have nothing added.”
