What can I put my turkey in to briine?
is a (clean) glad bag okay?
I am just doing a turkey breast, so I am sort of hoping I can just use the biggest bowl we have (nicknamed "the aquarium") and the fridge. if not....I am stumped.
A clean cooler. Put the turkey in, pour the brine around it. Then add either blue ice packs, or ice in ziploc bags (or, if you are far enough north, just put it outside.
Just don't add ice directly to the brine or you will dilute it.
Where do you live? Here in New England I use my biggest cooler. Turkey goes into the brining bag and into the cooler. I pour the brine over the turkey, seal the brining bag and then weigh the turkey down with bags of ice. Cooler stays out on the porch.
However if it's just a breast I would think you could put the turkey in a brining bag and use a shallow roaster to hold it. The roaster should slide right into the fridge.
Up to 10/12 pounds, I have very successfully used the fruit/vegetable drawer in my fridge!
Of course, YMMV, depending on size of drawer, but it's perfect if it does fit. Secure, cold, out of the way.
You must have a plastic 'crisper' drawer in the bottom of your fridge big enough to brine one turkey breast. Use that.
