Can I brine turkey in the orange home depot bucket?
« on: November 25, 2020, 12:04:30 PM »
From what I have read online, no. Is that the general consensus? Only other option is if I get a XXL large ziplock bag (just don't want to have to make a special trip just to pick that up if I can avoid it)

Try it you might like it.

If it fits in a bag, won't it fit in a pot?

I agree, I prefer the taste of the plastic from the ziploc bag. :)

I've used a big (yellow) flaum's pickle bucket that I got from a local restaurant for turkey brining.

I can't believe you all don't have a deep fryer pan. Man are you missing out.
