Turkey Brining Bag

Where can I find Turkey Brining Bags in Vancouver? or the XXL Ziploc Bag that can fit a 15-20lb turkey?

It seems like most major grocery stores don't sell them here.

Get a large tupperware container if you can't find one.

What what? What can't you put stuff in...?

Cause I'm pretty sure I've got some of my stuff stored in dollar store containers.

You should only be storing food in designated food storage containers, not just any container thats made of plastic, as PBC (an agent that causes cancer) can leak in to your perishables.

Gourmet warehouse, Williams Sonoma, call the kettle black, cookworks,.

Brining is one of the best ways to prep a turkey, good luck!

or just get a prebrined turkey (i think butterball does it)
unless you're planning to buy a heritage breed.
i got my turkey from JD farms last year and it was wonderful

Yep, basting is necessary, you want to keep the breast moist and keep the skin from burning.


On another note, try this brining recipe...

Buttermilk-Brined Turkey | Williams-Sonoma


IMHO spend the extra money and get a farm fresh turkey, it may cost up to 3x more but the flavour is well worth it. Check out your local butcher shop and see what they offer, I usually order mine from Jackson's Meat & Deli. Butterball is a no no...

certainly cant hurt.
when i did the turkey last year, i brined it and didnt baste it, but i did follow that tin foil trick that is on that recipe you posted. i think i got the idea from a good eats episode.

you could always line the container with a new plastic bag, thus preventing your food from contacting the actual plastic.

anyways, joke (but half serious) suggestion with the big tub.

if you want some good containers, go for the cambro containers that restaurants use.
great quality but a lil more expensive.
