That's a good recipe sam gave you, I've tried something similiar to that and it came out great. I didn't however leave it out to get that extra crispy skin, I'll do that next time. But in all honesty, you can pretty much make a brine out of whatever you like. Some people are big on beer, some are big on soda, some like to have a lot of ingredients while others like to keep it simple like water/salt/sugar. The possibilities are endless, you just gotta be creative. Let us know if you come up with one that you really like. :beer:

You should try smoked turkey. Do it like beer can chicken but use a fosters oil can instead. 24 Hr soak in salt,sugar,water brine. Dry rub under skin and over. Takes all day but its banging.:thumb_up:

What kind of rub would you use on a turkey, I adjusted my rib and brisket rub to lessen the salt content after discovering that the salt pulls the moisture from the meat. I was thinkin a brown sugar, chili powder, garlic, and dash of salt
