Easily cook a turkey using a simple turkey brine

In this tutorial, we learn how to easily cook a turkey using a simple turkey brine. First, grab a large plastic bucket that is clean, and add in water until it's halfway full. Add in pepper, bay leaves, dried thyme, peppercorns, and parsley to this brine. Use a large spoon to mix this together, then place your turkey inside overnight. When finished, let your turkey sit out for 30 minutes, then place it on the baking pan. Stuff it with parsley, lemon juice, and any other types of seasonings you like. Cover the top with 1 stick of melted butter, thyme, and sage. Bake in a 425 degree oven for 40 minutes breast side down. After this, turn the turkey over and bake in the oven at 325 and cook until it's done. Don't forget to baste the turkey every 15 minutes, then let cool for 20 minutes, carve, and enjoy!
