Why, yes, that is a 12-pound turkey floating in brine in my vegetable bin or, as Mike called it, "the turkey aquarium." I like to refer to it as the first stage of what will forever be known as The Best Turkey I Ever Ate.
After a day of bathing in an apple juice (and garlic and sage and peppercorn and...) brine, I have stuffed it with onions, apples and rosemary and massaged it with butter. It is now being slowly smoked over applewood.
You all may now drool and be very, very jealous.
p.s. (isn't the vegetable bin idea terrific? Found at notmartha, the home of the bacon bowl.)
