Default Looking for a good turkey brine recipe

I have a 1KG bone in turkey breast to cook for Christmas dinner and I want to try brining for the first time. Sadly I'm the only one that really likes turkey in the family, so a compromise is a turkey breast only. Well as luck would have it Costco had a whole turkey breast with bone in, so I jumped at it.

So who has a great brining recipe and how far in advance should it go in?

Thanks

Dean

Here is my favourite (compliments of Emeril LaGasse):

1/2 Gallon Apple Cider
1 gallon water
1-2 C Kosher Salt
2 C Dark Brown Sugar
2-4 Cinnimon Sticks
4 Bay Leafs
1/4 C Peppercorns
1 t cloves

Mix all ingredients in a non-reactive container. Submerge turkey (or this case breast) overnight, keeping cold in the refridgerator or ice for 24-48 hours. Make sure you rinse it good when you take it out of the brine.

ive used this brine recipe many times and roasted in the oven & gas grill.

did my first H/H smoke last weekend and the results were unbelieveable:

Patio Daddio's brine is pretty darn good. I used for Thanksgiving and will repeat on Christmas. The brine recipe link is in post # 5

Wow, look at all the endorsements for Daddio's brine. I haven't even tried it yet, and it's already my all-time favorite!

Yup it's Johns (PD) recipe for sure. Do three turkeys every Thanksgiving with it and nothing but compliments every year. Just don't over brine a breast it's all white meat. You don't want it to have mushy texture.

I found Smokin Okie's and Patio Daddio's brines to be similar, but then maybe most brines are riffs on the same tune. I made a combo brine of sorts and the bird was great. Patio Daddio's may be easier to find because I think it gets cited more often, but you should be able to find both easily by searching for them.
