  • 2 gallons water
  • 1 1/2 cups canning salt
  • 3 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar


  1. In a large bucket or container large enough to hold your turkey, mix together the water, salt, garlic, pepper, Worcestershire sauce and brown sugar. Store in a refrigerator, and soak turkey for 2 days before smoking or roasting.

**Use a large bucket, oven bag (Reynold’s), or trash bag to hold turkey and brine.  If there is not enough room in the fridge, place bagged turkey in an ice chest and cover with 2 bags of ice to keep cold.  Make sure to rinse turkey inside and out before cooking.
