How did your turkey turn out? My turkeys are always amazing and this year was the first year that I brined it and I was not impressed what so ever. I am no sure if it was the actual turkey or the brine though. It was as if the turkey was tasteless.

a7anooonah,

I followed the recipe and the turkey had very good flavor and was the most tender and moist turkey I've ever eaten.

Regards, Mark

That's great, Mark. I used the Good Eats recipe again this year and had the best turkey ever.

Thanks Andy. I'm thinking of excuses to make turkey now to my family. We will ring in the new year with a New Year's day turkey feast!

Happy New Year to all!

We had beef, but the turkeys were on sale, so picked up one for New Years. Would have liked to picked up a few more, but cash is low since dog had an emergency visit to vet right before Christmas. He's feeling better, eating expensive, natural, allergy formula dog food that cost more per pound than the turkeys...

Alix, a gallon is quite a bit more than a liter.

So I guess the consensus is I'm alright?
Oops, missed this! If you look at the discussion btwn Andy and I we were trying to determine how many liters in a gallon. I thought 2, Andy clarified it is closer to 4. So that meant your ratios AND mine were right. LOL. Just thinking in different systems. So glad your turkey was tasty. I convinced my MIL to try brining for the first time and this year her turkey was the best I've tasted there. YAY for brining.
