Pawpa Flavor's Bearly Legal Fizzing Poultry Brine
After countless attempts to produce the most juicy and flavorful bird. Pawpa Bear quickly realized that an effervescent element added in his brine always produced juicier flavors much deeper into the meat. This has been his secret ingredient for many years. So, you know him, the secret is out. Sharing is caring.
Directions are for up to an 18lb bird (use two bags for larger)-
Set aside The Fizz bags. Clean a thawed raw turkey and remove all giblets and the neck. Bring the brine and 1 gallon of water, vegetable or chicken stock to a simmer for about 5 min. Enough time to dissolve the salt. Stirring frequently. Set aside and let cool completely to room temperature. Once brine is cooled- Open and pour the contents of The Fizz bags on top of each other in the middle of a clean/dry food grade 5-gallon sealable bucket or stock pot. Add cooled brine solution and 1 gallon of ice water. Immediately place turkey legs up and breast end down submerging in the solution. Fill with more ice and water if needed. Leaving a little room to add ice later. Seal the bucket and store in a cool location (50-65 degrees). Add ice as needed to keep the turkey nice and chilled. Brine for no less than 1 hour per pound and up to 48 hours. The longer the better. When done brining, remove turkey and rinse thoroughly (or you risk it being too salty). Discard the liquid. Prep and cook to 180°F in thigh. 170°F in breast. 165°F in stuffing. Carve and serve. Enjoy!
Pawpa Bear's tips-
Before cooking. Add butter between the skin and breast meat. Rub with a little olive oil and Pawpa Flavor Rosemary Garlic and or Mama Mia. Or, baste with melted butter mixed with a little flour and Pawpa Flavor Rosemary Garlic and or Mama Mia.
