I bought the smallest Turkey I could find: 8 pounds young Turkey.. there is only three of us in the family.
]I will brine it in liquid tomorrow for Thursday. I will be making sweet potato fries since my husband loves fried sweet potatoes (yams).
Since I learned brining the Turkey in liquid, I have not done it differently. One thing I have never done is frying the whole turkey. Too much work and risk and peanut oil.
