I started thawing the turkey in the refrigerator on Monday and it was still a little bit frozen on the inside when I pulled it out this afternoon for injecting, but it turned out fine. It continued to thaw while the marinating process started. I finished injecting the thighs and breast; then I set the bird into the leftover brine and placed it back in the refrigerator.
I placed the Tupperware container in a plastic bag and return it to the refrigerator overnight.
These are not "food grade" plastic bags, but at least they are not "scented". I would have used clear plastic if I had some large enough, but as Clint Eastwood once said, "improvise, adapt, and overcome".
The things I do in the name of good food.
Warming the oil
Into the oil
Crispy skin close up
Slicing the turkey breast
Drumsticks, left and right breast, and dark meat complete and ready to eat.
Turkey breast, stuffing and peas. The deviled eggs and cranberries wouldn't fit on the plate,
but that didn't stop me from eating them the second time around!
