I never have room in the fridge so I use a cooler and a big ziplock bag as a liner

I ended up with quarts more gravy by brining--oh yes we loved that.

Alrighty, good enough.... Brine it overnight or is that to long?

That's what I'll probably have to do.

I put the turkey into the brine before I go to bed the night before.

Brining is just part of his recipe. I recommend you follow the whole procedure including the cooking method.
