How to Brine your Bird

  • Place the turkey breast in a gallon zip lock bag and add 2 cups of pickle juice.
  • Brine the turkey in your refrigerator overnight.
  • Rinse the brine off the turkey breast.
  • Smoke it, bake it, or grill it. Your call.
  • Serve with your favorite sides (Think twice baked mac & cheese and smashed potatoes) or slice it thin and make a killer sandwich.
  • Devour.
