Brining Emergency

Salbert | Nov 20, 2012 01:14 PM

Picked up a Brining Bag to hold a 25 lb turkey..I have a 17 lb turnkey...
filled it 1/2 way with my wonderful brine.. placed turkey in breast side down...
more brine sealed it tight... only to have a damn hole on the bottom where it
is leaking!! thinking fast we poured the brine into our extremely large stock pot
emerged the turkey in.. I would say it fits with about 1/3 of the legs sticking out..
what was I supposed to do... so left it in the fridge overnight.. and now turned it after
12 hours... is this bad? I mean really bad? I would you turn it again before starting the
air drying Wed at!
