2 quarts apple cider
2 cups brown sugar
3/4 cup kosher salt
3 quarts water
3 oranges, quartered
4 ounces fresh ginger, sliced thin
15 whole cloves
6 bay leaves
6 large garlic cloves, crushed

Combine apple juice, brown sugar, and salt in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, stirring to dissolve. Boil for one minute, remove from heat, let mixture come to room temperature, then refrigerate to 40*F.

In a large non-reactive container, combine the apple juice mixture with the remaining ingredients and stir. Place rinsed, drained whole turkey into the brine. Use a heavy weight to keep the bird submerged, if necessary. I usually brine for about 36 hours, rinse and let sit back in the fridge uncovered for a few hours to dry out the skin.. This recipe will do a 12-14 lb bird. Double it for a 20lber and the bird and brine will perfectly fill a 5 gal bucket. I've tried a bunch of brines, but this is my favorite. Very subtle flavor, but so farking good.

Not exactly what you are asking, but I did a dry brine with kosher salt last year and it really turned out great.

Default 5 Gallon Bucket

I purchased a Food Grade 5 gallon bucket at Lowes last year just for brining my turkeys. I got it in the section with the trash cans and buckets I believe by the paint. It has a sticker on the side that says Food Safe on it... Maybe $5 or so.
Hope this helps.

1 lemon
1 quart very strong tea
1 quart beer (an IPA is ideal)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup kosher salt

Scale up if needed depending on the size of the turkey.

Really simple, 1cup kosher salt,1 cup sugar, a little garlic POWDER. Throw it in a big pot or bucket fill up to covered and keep it submerged all night. I like to heat up the brine on the stove till it all dissolves, but be sure to let it cool before using. been using this for years,perfect everytime.
