"Brining a turkey makes for a juicier bird, and this brine--with sage, celery seed, thyme and soy sauce--brings plenty of flavor too."

Absolutely WONDERFUL! Great on Chicken too! The Juiciest bird I've ever made!! I use it on whole chickens before I smoke them too!

Made the turkey really juicy and you can't even taste the soy sauce

I did this overnight to my turkey, which I then cooked in my big slow cooker. I also added some peppercorns, and more spices to the slow cooker. Moist and delicious!!!
