Bourbon Glazed Holiday Turkey
First step is to brine the turkey for 24 hours. Take one pouch of the brine seasoning and mix with one gallon of water in a non-metallic bowl. Add six cups of ice to brine and mix. Place the brine bag in a large pot. Place the turkey in the brining bag breast side down. Pour the brine mixture in the bag with the turkey. Place turkey in the refrigerator to brine.
Place the turkey on rack in a roasting pan. Add 2 cups of water to the bottom of the roasting pan.Preheat oven to 450º. Place turkey in the oven and roast for 30 minutes.
While the turkey is roasting, in a small saucepan combine the brown sugar, bourbon and butter. Heat until melted.
After 30 minutes at 450º, reduce the temperature to 325º. Brush turkey with glaze. This should be repeated every 15 minutes until the turkey reaches an internal temperature of 165º at which time the turkey should be removed from the oven and set to rest for 30 minute before carving and serving.
