Prep Time: 10 mins



– 2 gallons water – 4 tablespoons montreal steak spice – 3 onion sliced – 1 cup kosher salt or to taste – 3 tablespoons peppercorn – 5 bay leaves – 2 heads garlic – 18 lb turkey

Take your 5-gallon bucket and add the water, Montreal steak spice, onions, garlic, bay leaves, peppercorn, and salt. Do a little taste test and see if you need to add any more salt. Remember Kosher salt is different than table salt, so using the same amount of either one, usually means the kosher salt will be less salty.

Step 1

Submerge the whole bird into the brine and make sure the water covers the entire turkey. Place the bucket in the fridge for 12 hours or overnight.

Step 2

Remove the turkey from the brine and pat it dry with paper towels. It is now ready to roast!
