    Help with a Turkey Brine Pot recommendation

    I've been looking for a pot to have to do a Turkey brine, or to brine other things. Anyway, I've borrowed a pot from a friend and now want my own.

    any recommendations on a size? I was looking at a pot, but not sure what size.............seems it should be more than a foot tall...........

    if any brands are better than others, that would help as well.

    thanks in advance....

    I use a Cambro. It has worked very well for me. I have a large square one for turkeys and a smaller round one for chickens, etc.
    18" One-Touch Silver, 22" One-Touch Gold^2, Summit E-420, 22.5" WSM, 18.5" WSM, 14.5" WSM, Jumbo Joe.

    What Todd said, big food storage containers. Or a tall insulated cooler for drinks.

    Hoist one at KBC for me.... Red Jacket or Brickside would as well.

    I use this set: https://shop.thebriner.com/The-Brine...Kit-TB1203.htm. If memory serves I bought it from Cabella's but I wouldn't swear to that. Amazon has them but not with free shipping.

    I use a Zip-Lock XL bag https://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/A...U6A3EY/tvwb-20 and a 5-gallon Home Depot bucket. Line the bucket with the bag and then place your turkey and brine in it. Seal it up and place in the fridge. If you don’t have room or a second fridge, place the bucket in a cooler and surround with ice. I do this every year for thanksgiving!

    I use a beer/drink cooler and then scrub it out with chlorine wipes. I've used a Home Depot bucket as noted above and a gatorade style cooler but I usually do 2 turkey's at a time so I need a bigger capacity. I like using a cooler because I can leave it outside and the critters won't get to it. YMMV.

    Cheers,

    I use a canning pot, it can hold large turkeys and has no weight. Come with lid. Pickup for 10 to 15 dollars

    That's what I do, or use one of my turkey fryer pots.
    Using the bag means you don't have to make a ton of brine, just cinch it up and use less.

    Nice thing about that time of year ( in my area) I can leave it outside cause it's usually as cold as a fridge.

    Different smokes for different folks. Wish the Dollar Store sold gas!
