Brining a turkey.

MrsT | Nov 13, 2008 02:37 PM

This year I'm going to be hosting Thanksgiving. I am going to break family tradition and brine my turkey with a recipe courtesy of Alton Brown (yes I saw that episode yesterday too). He recommends brining the turkey for 6 hours. My problem is that I won't be home all morning and would probably have to leave the turkey in the brine for at least 12 hours. Is it possible to over-brine a turkey?
