Pineapple brine for turkey, anyone tried this?

TrishUntrapped | Nov 20, 2011 10:05 AM

I've decided to make a fresh non-Kosher turkey this year for Thanksgiving, and will brine it.

Came across several recipes for brines based on pineapple juice. Culling ideas from them, I put this original recipe together. Anyone else tried pineapple brines? My one concern is that this might be too sweet. Even after fully rinsing. What do you think?

4 quarts pineapple juice
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup soy sauce
1 cup teriyaki sauce
1 cup maple syrup
1 1/2 cups Kosher salt)
6 cloves garlic, cut into halves
4-6 whole bay leaves
1 tablespoon thyme
2 tablespoons red pepper, crushed
1 tablespoon paprika
Water as needed to cover bird
