    I am a novice when it comes to brining. I have only done it twice with the same recipe and that recipe was for a 14-18 pound turkey. I have a 7lb bone in turkey breast thawing and I was wondering do I half that brine recipe in order to brine the turkey breast and avoid it being too salty, mushy texture, etc.? Thanks in advance for the help!
     
  2. use the same brine as you used for the whole turkey if you like the way it turned out. You can make a half batch if needed.

    Happy smoken.
