I have a friend who brined a chicken this way and loved it. I'm sure you'll have fun experimenting.

Nice tip. As long as it doesn't interfere with the roasting, it would really pep up the gravy to use broth instead.

In the video Alton suggest putting the bird into the oven feet first.
Maybe that would help?

I have heard that many people add 1 extra gallon of water to the brine; the directions can be a but murky. Maybe this is at issue for you?

Ignore the people who enjoy making themselves feel superior. The recipe should be more clear for newbies.

Interesting that people are telling you to put it in; You're not supposed. to. I found watching the quick clips from the show, available on youtube too, are very helpful. You are supposed to discard the liquid used in steeping the aromatics. I'm curious what this does for the bird's roasting for those that have added it. It seems like it might more...

Yes. Or you can make your own veggie stock. That's what I do, and I don't even bother to remove all the veggie 'debris' when I'm ready to put the turkey in the brine; I'm going to rinse before baking anyway.
