Ingredients

  • 5-gallon bucket(Home Depot)

  • 3-pound box of kosher salt

  • 1

    T whole black peppercorns

  • 2

    gallons chicken broth(water mixed with bouillon cubes is fine

  • 1

    - gallon ice water

Directions

1. Clean the raw turkey and remove the neck and giblets. 2. In the bucket, combine the cooled(room temperature) broth with the ice water, salt, pepper and fresh herbs and mix well. 3. Place the turkey in the bucket, breast side down and cover the bucket. Leave it to sit somewhere cool, I usually use the garage(unless it's summer time obviously). 4. After at least 6 and no more than 12 hours, and prior to cooking your turkey, remove the bird and rinse it with cool water, then proceed with your cooking prep.
