Brine Question

    I've been smoking turkeys a long time.  I always brine them.

    Put the brine in a cooler, ice it down and let them rest...

    My question - Can I re-use the brine?

    My scenario this year...I've got to smoke 21 whole turkeys...

    2 Batches smoked on 2 different days...

    If the brine has remained cold, would it still be safe to use or should I make another 12 gallons of brine?

    Thanks!
     
  2. I would make a new batch as the brine is not going to have the same amount of salt and whatever else is in it because the first batch has absorbed some.

    Happy smoken.

    Thanks David, I was pretty much leaning that way for that reason...but just wanted other unbiased opinions..

    Happy Smoking!

    Happy smoken.
