Made this years ago, have been looking for it. So glad I found it.
I made this brine per the posted recipe. My fried turkey (13 lbs) came out excellent. The bird was moist and absolutely delicious. My family loved it. I let the turkey sit in the brine for about 15 hours and let it dry for 2 hours before frying it at 350F for 45 minutes.
Awesome brine! One of the best turkeys we've had for thanksgiving. Had to alter the recipe due to no stock in the area of candied ginger and allspice berries and the conversions can be found on Google.
I picked this recipe because of its name (married to a Matt) haha.....This recipe was easy as far as brine recipes go. I brined my turkey for 11 hours then deep fried it. Flavor was excellent not overpowering just a great flavor. Bird was juicy and tender and skin was beautiful brown. I will continue to use this one for Thanksgiving!!
I have to Make this every year cuz my famIly won t let me try anything different!!
I have fried a number of turkeys and I always brine them before frying. This is by far the best turkey brine I have used. My daughter-in-law told me this was the best turkey she had ever eaten.
I made this and it was fantastic for sure... I'm not a "cook" of any kind. Simple directions for anyone to follow. One thing that did confuse me - directions call for one gallon of water with ice chunks, and then another cup of water.. (?) Any way... Still a very tasty turkey thanks to this brine recipe.
Everyone loved this recipe. This has to be the best tasting turkey we have made for Thanksgiving or Christmas. We had friends over later and the turkey was all eaten up! Amazing. Thank you for sharing.
