Nov 21st 2010 12:45PM Yes!! If you have a 30 lb turkey - don't be afraid to brine for at least 30 hours up to 48 hours. It will not taste salty. I have been brining my thanksgiving turkey (always around 30lbs) for 15 years and always brine for at least 30 hours. I live in northern CT so I keep it in the garage and add ice occasionally to ensure that it stays under 40 degrees. I typically use about 3 to 4 cups of kosher and 2 to 3 cups of brown sugar. I also add some burboun (Wild Turkey usually) to add a little more flavor. By the waay - I also cook my turkey on my Weber Charcole grill.. but that's another story.
