I pulled a turkey out to thaw in the fridge on wed planned to have it sun it was all but almost thawed sat afternoon so I gave it a quick cold water bath in the sink less then a hour before putting it in the brine I had chilling in the fridge for a good hour or so..let it stay refrigerated in the brine till early early sun morning.. I was planning to attempt this recipe http://www.smokingmeatforums.com/a/turkey-brining-and-smoking so I had it air drying in the fridge well next thing ya know I run into a family emergency that had me out of town until today I pulled it out the minute I got home and got it on the cooker at about 3pm it's now 6pm and at almost 150 it was at 35 degrees when I put it on the cooker no foul smells or slime actually quite dry lol.. I know when in doubt throw out but I didn't really see any signs that should cause doubt? Any imput would be appreciated!!
