I have a question about wet brining a turkey. Can my turkey still be partially frozen when I start the brining process?

How long should it take to roast a spatchcocked, 20 pound, wet brined turkey?

Hi Eileen! Good news, you can actually simultaneously thaw and brine your turkey. It should defrost by the time your turkey is perfectly brined!

Thank you! Such a relief because my turkey is still frozen solid and will probably need to a wet bath to help it thaw! So thankful you and Food 52 are here to help.

I’ve also got a great hack from Lynn Rosetta Kasper which I’ve usd with a frozen turkey. Put the turkey and brine in one of those huge 40 gal zip loc bags. Put that in a cooler.
