    Don't forget to wash the brine off and if you have time dry that skin. I have forgotten this before and it really screws things up.

    How much Salt vs Liquid? 1/2C per Gallon and you can soak overnight. At 1C per Gallon 4-8 hours is about all you can go before the Bird gets too salty...JJ
  8. I did a cup of salt gallon of apple juice and extra water plus Water from The ice 1 1/2 bags and I did brine overnight I hope it's ok

    Should be fine if you are used to cooking with salt and salting your food on a regular bases. Some salt comes out as it cooks so Don't plan on using the Drippings as they will be quite salty unless you make a lot or gravy...JJ
