It's a 21 pound free-range, no preservatives or antibiotics (ever) turkey. The brine is vinegar based and the temperature is back down to 38 degrees.
The turkey is in a roasting bag with the brine and the bag is in water.
You'll be totally fine. Just make sure to keep an eye on the temp for the rest of the brining process and cook the turkey to 165 degrees F. You won't kill anyone! ; ) Hope this helps.
Thank you so much!
I have no answer, but I really appreciate that you put "death" as a tag in this post. I needed that laugh, and have been in moments of similar desperation/questionable health outcomes. Good luck!
