Default Best way to brine multiple Turkeys

Whats the best and EASIEST way of brining multiple birds? Would it be possible to go breast side down in a large cooler and fill with brine and ice, or at least get the breast under brine. Just a thought.

Depending upon the size of your cooler,.... Yes I have a large marine cooler for fishing and I can probably fit 4 large turkeys in it, but I only brine 3 in it. 1 for the oven, one smoked, and 1 fried. Our family gatherings are large.

For easy clean-up use Stark Disposable Cooler Liners. They also have Disposable 5 Gallon Bucket Liners.

I believe they have a special running????

A 13lb turkey fit perfect in 2 1/2 gallon zip lock bag with 1 gallon of brine.

We always do four, four different ways, oven baked, smoked, cajun and fried, but all are brined and we do them in our marine cooler with brine and plenty of ice to maintain temp. Happy thanksgiving! BTW we really prefer 10 to 12 pounders, young un'

Should you add more brine when brining 2 birds? Ive only brined 1 at a time in previous years. Should I double my ingredients or is this not necessary?
