[quote=Stachel]I have turkey responsibilities this year, and have been reading the threads on turkeys with interest.

Where & how do you thaw and brine your turkeys if they don't fit in the fridge?

I know my main fridge won't fit that + everything else.quote]

Stachel, I think alot is going to depend on where you live and when you plan on doing this. Here in Colorado its cool enough in November that I brine my turkey in my turkey fryer and leave it in the garage. In the summer I still use the turkey fryer but place it in a tub of ice to keep cool. Smoking turkey is one of my families most favorite items to smoke. Along with the normal salt brine we add grade maple syrup to the mix and add maple wood to the smoker, Turns out AWESOME.
