brining turkey in a plastic bucket

cimui | Nov 25, 2008 07:31 PM

i know that generally, you're supposed to brine in a stainless steel or other-non reactive container, but i don't have a pot large enough to hold my turkey. are there any horrible adverse consequences to brining in a plastic (rubbermaid) bucket? i've been reading some online accounts about petrochemicals leaching into food. i'm not sure whether or not the bucket is food safe (it was probably more intended to be used for mopping or something like that). thoughts anyone?
