For a JUICIER and TASTIER turkey, brine before cooking! If your turkey or chicken is kosher do not brine since it has already been salted. Brining isn't just for poultry but also lean cuts of meat and even fish and shrimp. But you must adjust time to their size. Example; a whole trout takes only 20 minutes and the same with shrimp, a whole chicken takes about 4 hours, a cut up chicken about 2hrs. May add honey or maple surup, may replace some of the water with something like apple cider or coffee. Let loose your creativity. Yes, you have to plan ahead but for little effort the results are WORTH IT!
