Default Turkey Dinner! (pron)

This cook is from last year, but I thought the timing might be right to share. Have a Happy Thanksgiving!

This was a frozen bird, about 15 pounds, no enhancements.
First I assembled the ingredients for the brine:

3 quarts water
2 cups Kosher salt
1 cup granulated sugar
2 tablespoons Rooster Booster Rub (or your favorite poultry seasonings)
2 onions quartered
6 garlic cloves crushed
1 lemon quartered and squeezed



Into the brine, quickly chilled and into the refrigerator overnight (about 12 hours)



Rinsed well



Injected with melted butter, rubbed with some more butter and sprinkled with salt and white pepper



Stuffed with some veggies



Into the Stumps Baby running at 300 degrees



A little over 3 hours later, the IT in the breast was 160, and she looked like this



Rested for about 20 minutes



Sliced and served with grilled corn, tomato salad and arugula.
For more info on the sides and gravy, check out my blog post at http://thehogblog.com/?p=2606

No, I just used lukewarm tap water and stirred until everything dissolved. Then I cooled it down with the ice cubes.

Looks great. Not going to brine this year but will be injecting the bird with equal parts butter honey and white wine.

Was the flavor of the butter injection noticeable or is it there mainly for moisture?

The butter mostly helps the moisture, not much noticeable flavor. Lately, I've been adding white pepper to the melted butter to kick it up a bit.
