The Brine is On

So I have a 20 pound turkey courtesy of my mother and I’ve decided to Brine it.

I’ve added Hawaiian Sea Salt, Garlic, and Worcesters Sauce along with covering up the turker all the way with water.  Goes in the oven tomorrow at 7:30 in the morning.

I could have  sworn that turkeys had all the giblets inside of them in a plastic bag… but this one only had the turkey neck and okole… I hope I’m not missing them.   I have doubled and tripled check to make sure I’m not missing them… but I guess this brand of turkey didn’t have them.   It’s not like I like that part of the turkey anyways.

Now that I think about this… this turkey does mean more to me then I realized.  Not only is this the first Turkey I’m cooking for other people… but this is my first Turkey I’m cooking for my son!  That means a lot to me.

Thanksgiving was always a big part of my life growing up.  I notice that in my wifes family, not as much is really made out of it.

I’m just thankful that I’m back on the Big Island with my Ohana and not still fighting the hustle and bustle of Oahu!

  1. Damon,
    Did you check in the neck end opening? That is where the bag usually is, but maybe you just got turkey.

    Damon – Doh! Sure enough… there it is! Thanks Allen!
