Yeah, that was only about half of the meat but, with only 5 eating it didn't make much sense to use a bigger tray.

I like using the apple juice to supplement the sugars in the brine and also because it doesnMt hav an over powering flavor to it. I know a lot of people use brines to impart a special flavor to a rather bland meat but, I like my brine to hint at subtle flavors while providing a severly moist bird that the roasting flavors carry all the way through. To me it's making the bird all it can be instead of forcing it full of other flavors.
