You need 1 cup of salt per liter of water ,…. 5 gallons should do …. There is no rule for other spices. like sugar .. it is a matter of taste … Instead of adding ice to the brine and dilution …. freeze several baggies of water and add salt water as needed .. Gel 8 and I use 4 at a time … £ 12 for a bird, it must be at least 12 hours einweichen.Stellen salt completely dissolved before SieIhre Türkei.Garzeit is the same for a bird in brine, as for him who has not been brined.

Is it okay to rub butter/garlic/herbs under the turkey skin if you are using the 500-375 Alton Brown method?

Question by Techie Mom: Is it okay to rub butter/garlic/herbs under the turkey skin if you are using the 500-375 Alton Brown method?
Every year now, I have been brining my Thanksgiving turkey. I also use Alton Brown’s recipe that cooks at 500 degrees for 30 minutes and then reduces the temp to 350. It always turns out super moist. In the “old” days before I followed Alton Brown’s method, I used to rub an herbed butter mixture under the skin of the turkey. It gave some nice additional flavor and also looked pretty after it was cooked to see the herbs under the skin. I am wondering if it would be okay to rub a butter/herb mixture under the skin even with the 500 degree initial temperature or if the butter and/or the herbs and garlic could burn and ruin the turkey. Burned garlic = BAD!

If anyone has tried this, I would love to hear your results.

Thanks and Happy Thanksgiving!

Brining a turkey is so good, and to add the herbs between the skin and meat is even better. Your turkey should be fine if it is covered initially before placing in oven.
Happy eating.
