Grrrr turkey still frozen!

Yep my turkey is rock solid hard. I took the bird out of the freezer Sunday night and had it in my fridge. I took it out today to brine it only to discover it didn't even thaw a bit.

Now I have to do that darn cold water method to get it thawed enough so I can brine it this afternoon!

Better check your turkeys now!

If you can get it cleaned out (the giblets and such), I say into the brine with it!

The extra salt will help it thaw....

I have put mine in the brine frozen too. I often leave it outside (its chilly here) with the lid on to discourage a curious dog...it usually doesn't take too long to thaw and the brine still works on it.
