Thanks, bro! I must say that it's very humbling to play just a very small part
in the success of such a traditional and revered meal. As a cook there are
very few things that are better.

Thanks again, brothers and sisters!

It worked great for us. Was super easy to use (and managed to find all the spices at a Penzeys when I was restocking) My girlfriend is super nutty about the meal being traditional. This was our first year away from her family when the holiday hit, and I convinced her to go for a smoked turkey. The leftovers today still showed a great flavor.

Not yet - but that's what I have in mind! I won't be able to do it this weekend, but it's gonna happen soon - within the next 2 weeks.

I too have to thank you John. Every Thanksgiving the ppl (45) we serve rave about how moist and flavor filled the turkeys are. Only problem is I can't take full credit. I always break out the laptop and show them why. As in your blog.

Another believer chiming in, although I did deviate the recipe some. I added the zest of the oranges and lemons plus added about 1/4 cup of whole black peppercorn. I'm sure it would've been great without the additions, the turkey turned out great ;). I'm one of those that goes, "I think it'd be good we do this....". Got to give credit where credit is due, thanks for the wonderful recipe, but I'm not sure if the zest made that much of a difference.

Yup. I did this same brine this year. I usually have a really similar, but simpler recipe, but went with this one.

All agreed.....

SUPERB!!



It's bound to be a regular!

Gotta jump on the bandwagon of y'all folks that used John's brine recipe & were really pleased with the result. (gotta admit to having substituted allspice for the Chinese 5 spice.0

Thanks again John for sharing your recipe with us.

My first time using John's brine as well, 3 breasts in the brine for 16 hours, then on the smoker. Family and friends thought it was great.

Thanks John!
