My first smoked turkey

  1. I am about to smoke a whole turkey for the first time.  I am going to brine the turkey and the ingredients call for chicken stock which is, sodium 470mg (20%) of a 946ml carton.  With this amount of sodium in the carton will I need to add the additional salt.

    Thank you for your advice.
     
  2. Wow I have never used stock in any brine I have done.  Salt, sugar and water.  Maybe a little Worcestershire and or Soy sauce. 

    Does it CALL for more salt?  If so I would follow the recipe.

  3. Yes it does, I will, and thank you for the advice.
     
  4. Don't forget to rinse off that brine before smoking, otherwise you might end up with some very unpleasant pockets of salt/seasoning. Dry off well. Good Luck.
     
  5. I will, thank you.
