I’ve been frying turkey for 7 or 8 years and today I prepared a 13 lb. bird for frying tomorrow. I’ve written a few posts about how I like to do it. Shake’s Honey Brine is my favorite brine injection recipe.
I started thawing the turkey in the refrigerator on Monday and it was still a little bit frozen on the inside when I pulled it out this afternoon for injecting, but I’m sure it will be fine. I finished injecting the thighs and breast; then I set the bird into the leftover brine and placed it back in the refrigerator.
I place the Tupperware container in a plastic bag and return it to the refrigerator overnight.
These are not “food grade” plastic bags, but at least they are not “scented”. I would have used clear plastic if I had some large enough, but as Clint Eastwood once said, “improvise, adapt, and overcome”.Compton California's #1 Taco, Ribs, and Chicken spot
