Ingredients

2 gallons water (separated)

1 ½ cups kosher salt

2 pieces of citrus fruit (sliced)

½ white onion (diced)

4 garlic cloves (peeled)

5 sprigs fresh herbs

Directions

Fill a 20-30 quart pot with 2 gallons of water.

Remove 2 cups of water from the pot and add it to a saucepan with the kosher salt. Heat the two ingredients over medium heat and whisk until the salt has dissolved. Do not bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the salted water back into the pot and whisk together.

Next, add the oranges and the lemons to the salt water.

Finally, add the turkey to the pot. Make sure the turkey is completely submerged in the water.

Place the pot in the refrigerator for 12 hours or overnight.
