1. Here's one I used last year with GREAT results: This recipe is enough for a 12-to 14-pound turkey.

2. The spicing is very faint, mostly you taste the salt and a bit of the sugar.

3. It's a bit like a very elegant version of commercial smoked turkey, only without the smoke.

4. Double the recipe for a 24-28 lb turkey. Check your container's (crock) volume.

5. Combine spices in saucepan. Add 1 quart water and bring to boil.

6. Simmer 5 minutes, then add to remaining 2 quarts of cold water.

7. Chill thoroughly before using brine. Makes 3 quarts (enough for 12- to 14-pound turkey).

8. Brine for 2 to 4 days, turning the bird twice a day.

9. Cook turkey 12 minutes per pound: 450 degrees for 30 minutes, then, 375 degrees for remainder of time.
