Small pieces of meat, a glass or plastic container.
Larger pieces, a stainless steel pot. I have a 5 gallon pot that a 20+ pound turkey fits in.

Depending on the size or amount of meat I'll use:
1) One gallon or two gallon ziplock freezer bags.
2) Five gallon plastic bucket.
3) Ice chest cooler.

plastic bag. My favorite is the Hefty 2.5 gallon bags. I can only find them at BJ's. They can fit butts and briskets no prob. I've never needed a bucket but would use a home depot 5 gal bucket if necessary. Some guy came around at a comp with a special brining bucket that he invented that had a screw down lid to keep meats submerged. It was like $20. I threw the card away. HD bucket wins if I need it.

Anytime using salt or an acid based solution, you should always use a NON_REACTIVE container. This would include Aluminum and cast iron.

Stainless, Glass, and Food Safe Plastic are fine.

I use Stainless Steam Table Pans Full or Half with a food liner for small cooks, or meat lugs with liners for larger cooks. The food safe liners make clean-up a breeze. They stack easy and can be stored easy as well.

Half Size pans

Pan Liners

Meat Lugs and Liners

I finally broke down and purchased a true turkey briner last year. Great design with a locking plate that keeps your meat down low in the brine.

I use gallon zip locks, but thats because I don't have much else that'd fit in the fridge. But we are replacing the fridge and the old one becomes MY fridge. So I plan on using food grade 5 gallon buckets, and maybe a smaller one.

Plastic buckets.... an old pickle bucket.... and I don't know how many times I've used it, brined, washed and sat back on the shelf. When I take the lid off of it and sniff, it still smells like pickles!!!

I have personally seen The Briner and had it in my hands. It is a quality product. The best feature of the design is the lid that holds the meat well under the surface of the brine with out using any type of weight. I plan on purchasing one soon. I know Tom Bera from Philly Blind Pig uses one and is pleased with it.

I was at Firehouse subs for the first time the other day and saw they sell 5 gallon pickle buckets for $2.

The biggest difference between the coolers and a food-safe bucket is if your storage space is small. Most people need a cooler more often they need a bucket that has to be reserved for food use only. I get pickle buckets for free, but someone always seems to grab them for some other use. Also, the dogs love to steal the bucket lids if they are not stored high.
