Woodford Reserve Turkey Brine

Recipe and photos by Woodford Reserve found here.

FOR THE BRINE:

(Measurements shown are for a 20-pound bird.)

Combine all ingredients together in a large pot and bring to a simmer until incorporated. Cool to 40 degrees. Brine the turkey overnight for best results.

FOR THE TURKEY GLAZE:

Melt sorghum, mount with butter a bit at a time, whisking in. Whisk in the whiskey off the heat. Glaze the bird with this mixture once the skin on top of the bird starts to turn golden.
