Dan Daru shows us some other ways to cook your Thanksgiving bird.

Brine Recipe
The day before cooking prepare a brine solution in a large stock pot or a 5 gallon paint bucket available at Ace Hardware:
1 cup sea salt
1 cup brown sugar
4-6 sprigs of thyme
6 leaves of sage
10 peppercorns
1/2 cup apple cider vinegar
2 lemons quartered
2 oranges quartered
2 gallons of water
Place the thawed turkey in the brine solution and let sit for 8-24 hours in the refrigerator.
Remove the brined turkey from the solution 1 hour prior to smoking and pat dry.
